The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has cleared the air over the ongoing investigation into the tenures of former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Professor Charles Soludo and former governor of Kwara State, Dr Bukola Saraki.
The anti-graft agency revealed that the duo still had cases to answer with the commission. Spokesperson of the the agency, Wilson Uwujaren, who addressed a media conference yesterday, said investigation into the alleged involvement of Professor Soludo in the printing of polymer notes when he held sway as governor of the apex bank has reached an advanced stage, adding that when concluded, he might be charged to court.
Uwujaren said: “It is true that we invited Professor Charles Soludo to the EFCC in relation to an investigation we are conducting on the polymer notes. That investigation has not been closed.
“When an investigation is going on and somebody is invited, it does not presuppose that the person is guilty. It only means the person has a case to answer. That investigation is still going on and we will soon conclude that.”
On Dr Saraki’s case, Uwujaren said: “On the former governor of Kwara State, Bukola Saraki, yes he was also invited by the EFCC. As we speak, that investigation is still ongoing. We have not cleared anybody.
“The case against Saraki has to do with the transactions that took place when he was the managing director of Societe Generale Bank.
“ Also the things that took place when he was the governor of the state. I want to state that the investigation is still on.”
Uwujaren explained to journalists how an internet fraudster by the name Jesse Omokoh allegedly obtained $90,000 from a 67-year old Australian, Jette Jacobs in a romance scam.
