LIKE OKE, YOU MUST ALSO INVITE BABACHIR LAWAL | AFENIFERE TELLS EFCC

In a statement by its spokesman, Yinka Odumakin on Thursday, Afenifere said the EFCC must not spare Lawal in its investigations.

It said the EFCC must also invite Lawal for allegations against him.

“We are however surprised that the EFCC has not extended similar invitation to Mr Babachir Lawal, the former SGF sacked alongside Oke,” Afenifere said.

Odumakin said the anti-graft agency seemed to have exercised its discretion by inviting Oke and sparing Lawal who he alleged was initially protected by the Presidency.

“Inviting one and leaving the other has brought to the fore again the charge of selectivity with picking and choosing those to prosecute over corruption in the land which led a serving Senator to observe that insecticide comes handy when allegations of corruption are raised against some people and deodorant deployed when it is the turn of others,” Afenifere submitted.

“We insist that for the perception not to become stronger that the anti-graft war develops strong teeth against the vulnerable and become toothless against the sacred cows, the EFCC must invite Lawal as it goes after Oke,” Afenifere stressed.
