Activist Wants Court to compel EFCC To Investigate Corruption Charges Against Oshiomhole

 

Bishop Osadolor Ochei, a rights activist and anti-corruption crusader has dragged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to court for refusing to investigateĀ  corruption charges against former Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole

He insisted that the EFCC refused to attend to a well-detailed petition he submitted to the anti-graft agency on October 28, 2016, which was published in the Daily Sun of November 7, 2016, together with other national newspapers, bordering on economic and financial crimes against Oshiomhole.

In a motion ex-parte, Ochei is praying the court to, as a matter of urgency, compel the EFCC to commence the investigation and prosecution of the former governor; pursuant to sections 6 (b) & (h) and 13 (2) of the EFCC Act, 2004.

In his suit, the applicant said he has complained to the EFCC about allegations of corrupt practices against Oshiomhole, on a number of occasions, without eliciting any response or interest from the EFCC in this regard. He insisted EFCC failed to examine and investigate the said allegations upon such reports to it.
