The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Sunday denied freezing the account of Senator Ademola Adeleke, candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the September 22, 2018 Osun State governorship election and those of his family members, including the musician, David Adeleke alias Davido.
“The Commission called on members the public to disregard the report, which is patently false and contrived to dress the agency in a partisan garb in the unfolding political contest in Osun State. For the avoidance of doubt, at no time did the EFCC place a freeze order on any account belonging to members of the Adeleke family. The purported freeze order which has unfortunately been amplified by pliable sections of the media without any attempt at confirmation, is alien to the Commission and another example of fake news,” Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC Head, Media and Publicity, said in a statement.
“The EFCC,” he said, “frowns at the seeming attempts by faceless forces to drag it into the political fray and, for the umpteenth time, restates its neutrality as a law enforcement organisation that is sworn to uphold the law at all times, irrespective whose interest is at stake.”
