Afenifere condemns EFCC’s invitation to Oke, leaving out Lawal

• Anti-graft agency probes ex-SGF
• N’Delta agitators back Buhari, want
dissolution of NNDC board
The Yoruba socio-cultural organisation,
Afenifere, has flayed the Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for
inviting the former Director-General of
National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Mr.
Ayodele Oke and his wife over cash found
in their Ikoyi apartment but sparing the
former Secretary to the Government of the
Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, who was
also indicted by the Senate and the panel
headed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
In a statement signed yesterday by its
spokesman, Mr. Yinka Odumakin, the group
said its attention had been drawn to the
invitation extended by the EFCC to Oke while
Lawal was spared.
However, the EFCC has set up a crack team
to probe the fraud allegation against Lawal.
A source in the anti-graft agency exclusively
confirmed this to Channels Television
yesterday in a telephone interview.
The team, made up of special investigators
from the agency, is to examine all the
details relating to the N200 million contract
for the cutting of grass in the North-East,
which is linked to the former SGF.
Meanwhile, a coalition of Niger Delta
agitators yesterday applauded President
Muhammadu Buhari for relieving the Lawal
and Oke of their duties.
It also supported President Buhari’s effort
in the development of the oil-rich Niger
Delta region.
Besides, the group, in a statement, called for
the dissolution of the current Board of the
Niger Delta Development Commission
(NDDC) led by Senator Ndoma-Egba and Mr.
Nsima Ekere. It also enjoined the President
to suspend the Group Managing Director of
the Nigerian National Petroleum
Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Maikanti Baru, for
alleged mismanagement of the corporation.
“Finally, we totally condemn the recent
stoppage of the Pan Niger Delta Forum
(PANDEF) meeting in Port Harcourt by the
police and DSS; and we warn that such
thing should not repeat itself again as we
may not take it lightly.
“PANDEF is the authentic voice of the Niger
Delta people and we call on security
agencies to immediately arrest the leaders
of the Pan Niger Delta Peoples’ Congress
(PNDPC) for trying to cause mayhem in the
Niger Delta after PANDEF has worked
tirelessly to restore peace in the Niger Delta
region,” the statement added.
Those who signed the statement included
General John Duku (Niger Delta Watchdogs
and Convener Coalition of Niger Delta
Agitators); General Ekpo Ekpo (Niger Delta
Volunteers); General Osarolor Nedam (Niger
Delta Warriors); Major-Gen. Henry Okon
Etete (Niger Delta Peoples Fighters); Major-
Gen. Asukwo Henshaw (Bakassi Freedom
Fighters); Major-Gen. Ibinabo Horsfall (Niger
Delta Movement for Justice); and Major-Gen.
Duke Emmanson (Niger Delta Fighters
Network) and Major-Gen. Inibeghe Adams
for Niger Delta Freedom Mandate, among
Major-Gen. Abiye Tariah for Niger Delta
Development Network; Major-Gen. Joshua
Ebere for Renewed Movement for
Emancipation of Niger Delta; Major-Gen.
Jeremiah Athony for Movement for
Actualization of Niger Delta Republic; Major
Francis Okoroafor for Niger Delta Freedom
Redemption Army and Colonel Nelson
Okochi Walter.
