EFCC set to charge electoral officials…

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is set to charge over 100 electoral officials for allegedly receiving part of the one hundred and fifteen million dollars disbursed by a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, DIEZANI ALISON-MADUEKE, during the build-up to the 2015 presidential election.

Sources within the EFCC said the acting Chairman of the EFCC, IBRAHIM MAGU, and the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. MAHMOOD YAKUBU, would meet tomorrow in Abuja to tidy up the charges that would be filed against the suspects.

While some of the officials would only face dismissal for breach of INEC rules, a majority of them would be arraigned by the EFCC.

Some of the officials, who have returned a total sum of four hundred million Naira, may not face prosecution.

At the meeting, MAGU is expected to present a report on the investigation while the INEC boss would make recommendations.

The EFCC had, in April, arrested the Resident Electoral Commissioner in the 2015 elections in Rivers State, Mrs. GESILA KHAN, and other officials of INEC that conducted elections in Delta and Akwa Ibom states.
