Kogi Government debunks money laundering allegation by EFCC

Kogi State Government has debunked an allegation of money laundering levelled against the state by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Commissioner for Information and Communication, Mr. Kingsley Fanwo, described the allegation as sustenance of the persecution of the government by the Abdulrasheed Bawa-led EFCC.

While insisting that no money belonging to Kogi State Government was laundered, the Commissioner said Nigerians should ask the EFCC if it’s biased corruption searchlight was only meant for Kogi State.

He said the inclination of the EFCC was against the acknowledgement of due process and financial accountability given to the Kogi State Government by international organizations.
