The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has dismissed a report claiming that its accountant stole over N10 billion from National Intelligence Agency.

Rebuffing the news report, the anti-graft agency said there no accountant by the name Jafaru Mohammed.

“The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to a report by an online news medium, Peoples Gazette, alleging that a certain Jafaru Mohammed whom it claimed stole N10.9billion from the NIA Ikoyi loot is an accountant of the EFCC,” EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren said in a statement.

“The claim is false and intended to mislead the public.  For the avoidance of doubt, the EFCC has no accountant by name, Jafaru Mohammed and could not have appointed him to serve in another agency.


“It is infantile to suggest that the Commission would appoint an accountant for the National Intelligence Agency, NIA, which is not a department of the EFCC.

“The public is enjoined to discountenance the report which is dripping with mischief for which Peoples Gazette has become notorious.
