Odigie-Oyegun said:

“We are totally, completely innocent of this. We absolutely have nothing to do with it. She is not on trial by the way- it is an investigation that has to do with the Senate President’s wife.”

“There were insinuations that this could have been triggered by the opposition party itself, and the PDP itself asked its branch in Kwara State to make a denial that they were not the originators of the petition or whatever triggered this thing.”

“What we have not done is like in the PDP days, rush and interfere with the processes of the EFCC which our President has said quite clearly; everybody should be allowed to carry out his legitimate function without interference. The EFCC is doing what it feels it needs to do.”
