EFCC freezes accounts of Akwa Ibom government

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has frozen the bank accounts of the Akwa Ibom state government.

A top official of the government disclosed this to TheCable on Wednesday.

The source said Udom Emmanuel, the governor, and accountant-general of the state were shocked by the development.

“The governor was shocked when he was briefed about the development,” the source said.

“He has demanded explanation from the EFCC. Our suspicion is that our big friend who just departed is behind the issue but we will fight this injustice.”

The report of the freezing of Akwa Ibom government accounts happened 24 hours after the commission blocked those of Benue government.

Wilson Uwujaren, spokesman of the anti-graft agency, did not respond to inquiries by TheCable.

I am a civil, human and political rights activist. I chose to speak for the ignored and powerless. The Nigerian political scene is a jungle. Print and electronic media are owned by wealthy elites who irrespective of ethnicity and religion suppress public discourse of misgovernance, their political and economic ineptitude which has left Nigeria on it's knees. Ibomtent.com seeks to fix that. That is our aim. That is my life calling and purpose.
