Alledged Massive Looting of Abia Treasury: Sir Nwosu Advises EFCC To Always conclude Investigation before going to the Press
… Calls On Abians To Monitor Investigation…
A Chairmanship hopeful for the NBA, Ukwa Branch Elections, Sir S.E.C Nwosu has advised the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (E.F.C.C.) to always insure that it concludes investigation into allegations of economic crimes before going to the press with stories of the alledged crime.
Sir Nwosu gave the advice following the news of the alledged massive looting of Abia State treasury by the former governor of the state Chief T. A. Orji and his children.
According to the Chairmanship hopeful, it is over a forthnight now since the media was flooded with the startling report of EFCC investigation into alledged massive looting of Abia State treasury by the former governor and his family.
According to the reports, over#500 billion of Abia State money was alledgedly looted by the former governor’s family. After the quake caused by the revelation, the state has become quite again with only little show of disapproval of the alledged looting by the people.
Apart from few protests in Umuahia and Abuja there has not been any more action for or against the allegations in the public domain.
The NBA, Ukwa Branch chairmanship hopeful said ” Although, that it is still in the realm of allegation, it is worrisome that one family entrusted with the fate of Abia State could divert such humongous sum of money for private and selfish purpose while denying the entire people what lawfully belong to them”
Sir Nwosu noted that there is no guessing what over half a trillion naira would do to the life of the state and it’s people.
He called on the EFCC as a matter of urgency, to quickly conclude investigations into the allegations and to charge whosoever has been indicted by the investigation. This, he said, will guard against any interference in the investigation by the suspects. He called on Abians to monitor the investigations with a view to ensuring that the investigation is not interfered with.
Sir Nwosu said that concluding investigation before going to press will help protect the EFCC investigators from undue pressure and and ensure that innocent suspects are not condenmed before the conclusion of investigation.
He promised that when he becomes Chairman of Ukwa Branch, he will propose to the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Nigerian Bar Association a synergy between the NBA and EFCC which will make it mandatory for NBA chapters in the various states to cooperate with the EFCC, whenever matters of the looting of any state treasury by those entrusted with the affairs of the state is under investigation. By such cooperation, the NBA in the various states will be functioning properly as the custodians of the rights of the public.
