The commission said at no time did it place a freeze order on any account belonging to members of the Adeleke family, noting that the reports of frozen account are “another example of fake news.”
The EFCC’s Spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, in a release on Sunday, said the agency would not be dragged into the political fray, noting that it would uphold the rule of law at all times.
The agency said,
“The attention of the EFCC has been drawn to reports that it had frozen the account of Senator Ademola Adeleke and those of his family members, including the musician, David Adeleke.
“The commission calls on members the public to disregard the reports, which are patently false and contrived to dress the agency with 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.
“The EFCC 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 organization that is sworn to uphold the law at all times, irrespective whose interest is at stake.” SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
