The Deputy Director of Operations at EFCC, Mr. Iliyasu Kwarba has vowed that former first lady Patience Jonthan would be prosecuted once evidence of corruption against her is uncovered.
He made the vow after receiving a petition against Patience and the ruling All Progressives Congress from protesting members of the Human Rights Defenders and Advocacy Centre at the anti graft agency’s office in Ikoyi, Lagos.
HRDAC accused the EFCC of being selective in its anti-graft war, wondering why Patience was still walking freely in spite of the evidence, which they said the EFCC had against her.
The group asked the EFCC to change its slogan from ‘Nobody is above the law’, since it had found it difficult to go after the likes of Patience, and ex-Presidents, including Ibrahim Babangida, Abdusalam Abubakar, Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan.
The protesters also challenged the EFCC to probe the source of the election campaign fund of the ruling All Progressives Congress in the 2015 election, while also demanding a probe the national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and ex-Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi.
