Ekweremadu denies EFCC’s arrest
Nigerian former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu denies reports that he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), assuring supporters that there was nothing to worry about.
In a statement made by his Media Adviser, Uche Anichukwu, Ekweremadu stated that the report, just like others before it only represented the “unholy imagination of the authors and their sponsors”.
Meanwhile, In a post on his verified Facebook account, @iamekweremadu, the Senator said: “My attention has been called to a fake story making the round purporting that I was arrested by the EFCC. I could not have bothered about such spurious tales, but for the concerns shown by my friends and supporters through calls and messages.
“There was no such arrest and I have never been arrested by the EFCC.
“The public should, therefore, ignore this and other such hatchet reports and smear campaigns as they only represent the unholy imaginations of the authors and their sponsors” he added.
