The “EFCC,” Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, has wholly debunked all speculations on the internet, noting that the commision has frozen the accounts of famous Nigerian musician, Davido Adeleke, aka OBO and that of his uncle, Ademola Adeleke.
However, Nigerians Reacted to the Freezing Davido’s Bank Account by EFCC.
The EFCC has Issued in a statement on Sunda, following the rumor, stating that it was a false alarm and that the EFCC was never involved in such an act.
The EFCC Statement Read:
“The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has been drawn to several media publications alleging that it had frozen the accounts of Senator Ademola Adeleke, candidate of the opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in Sept. 22, 2018, Osun State governorship election as well as those of his family members, including the musician, David Adeleke.
“The Commission calls on members of the public to disregard the reports, which is patently false and contrived to dress the agency in a partisan garb in the unfolding political contest in Osun State.
“For the avoidance of doubt, at no time did the EFCC place a freeze order on any account, belonging to members of the Adeleke family.
“The purported freeze order which has unfortunately been amplified by pliable sections of the media without any attempt at confirmation is alien to the Commission and another example of fake news.
“The EFCC frowns at the seeming attempts by faceless forces to drag it into the political fray and, for the umpteenth time, restates its neutrality as a law enforcement organization that is sworn to uphold the law at all times, irrespective whose interest is at stake.”
