The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has initiated an investigation into allegations of misappropriation of campaign funds belonging to the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) for the 2023 elections.

Sources told VANGUARD that the EFCC has summoned the National Secretary of the party, Oginni Sunday, to provide evidence regarding the alleged fraud linked to Rabiu Kwankwaso and his Private Secretary.

Oginni’s petition reportedly implicates the signatories to a bank account of NNPP.

Confirming the development in a telephone chat with Vanguard in Abeokuta, the party National Secretary, Oginni said, he was a guest at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) headquarters in Abuja last week Wednesday to make statements and clarifications on the petition he signed on behalf of the party, alleging Kwankwaso and his team of N2.5 billon fraud.

“Truly, I was invited by the EFCC. I honoured the invitation and I was satisfied with the professionalism of EFCC officers. I answered questions related to the petition I signed on behalf of NNPP without any harassment or intimidation.

“They want to be sure that the allegations are true and without any ill motives. We are very sure that Nigeria is in a very safe stance with these crops of EFCC officers who are ready to get rid of corruption at Nigeria high places without sacred cows,” Oginni said.
