The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has reacted to a story in the Punch Newspaper of Saturday, July 13, 2019, titled: Osinbajo’s firm linked to company fingered in alleged N100bn Alpha Beta scam.
The commission affirmed that such petition was received on Alpha Beta by it last year, the commission however claimed that preliminary investigation has shown that the petitioner did not substantiate the allegation contained in his petition.
EFCC remarked that it does not take actions based on hearsay, rather it acts on facts and raw data.
“For the records, the Alpha Beta investigation is ongoing and we have nothing to hide over the matter. If the petitioner has any further proof with regards to the petition, our doors are wide open.
“As a tradition, we do not deal on hearsay, we act on facts and raw data.”
“The Commission will not allow anybody to drag its name and reputation into the mud for ill-motive reasons. As we continue our investigation, we urge the media to be circumspect, fair and balance in their reportage.”
