The protesters, who were showing support for the embattled Patience Jonathan, said the EFCC is selective in its anti-corruption war.
The Zonal head of the anti-graft agency, Mr Ishaq Saliu, disclosed this in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, when some Niger Delta youths took a protest to the agency’s office.
The protesters, who were showing support for the embattled ex-former first lady, Patience Jonathan, alleged that the commission is selective in its anti-corruption war.
The anti-graft agency had traced $15 million to Mrs. Jonathan's accounts. The monies are believed to be proceeds of corruption.
“There is nothing selective in the cases of EFCC. We are professionals to the core," Saliu said.
“Once an allegation is made, before somebody is even invited – the invitation is the last leg of our cases.
“Bank documents and things we need to inquire would have been gotten."
