EFCC Set To Invade Edo State As Philip Shaibu Seeks Portuguese Citizenship.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, is reportedly set to Invade Edo State making massive arrest.
According to a group the Alliance for Youth Awareness the EFCC is set to probe a case of an alleged N65 Billion suspicious transactions involving Obaseki and some key top Government officials.
They asserted that between January and June 2020 some government officials were involved in some huge cash transactions directly from the State treasury.
The group also claims no fewer than 20 petitions are currently before the EFCC over the profligacy of heavy questionable financial transactions of the Edo State Government.
According to the group, any moment from now the EFCC would be swooping on key government officials.
The Alliance For Youth Awareness(AYA) a conglomeration of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in Nigeria in a detailed document released late Sunday evening disclosed some startling revelations.
They claim key players of the financial transactions have allegedly gone underground in an attempt to evade arrest by the EFCC.
The transactions involved some key government officials and may consume Obaseki’s personal assistant from Delta State Mr Tijani Nwadei aka TJ, also the new Chief of Staff to Obaseki, Mr Ethan Uzamere may also be caught in the web of controversy surrounding the suspicious N65 Billion withdrawal.
The information available to us also indicates that Obaseki may be in for a long battle with anti-financial crime agencies in Nigeria as many documented cases of suspicious financial transactions involving Billions of naira are currently pending before the EFCC and ICPC.
There is a present case of a 700 million dollar Gelegele Sea Port scandal, there is a Multi-Billion naira scam involving the agripreneur scheme with CBN.
It is alleged Obaseki has made over N20 Billion in the signing of over 200 MOU’s as consultancy fees alone.
Also, the group mentioned a certain Jiro Ejobe who works for Obaseki and the State Government as a data collection analyst.
The young man from Delta State is a strong friend of Obaseki from his Afriinvest days.
He is alleged to be very good at data collection and manipulation and maybe a prime target to the anti-financial crime agencies as his name is also linked to huge suspicious deals with the internally generated revenue agency of the State.
Sources say he is a MARKED MAN by the anti-crime agencies.
Meanwhile, fresh information reaching our news desk indicates the Deputy Governor of Edo State, Hon Philip Shaibu is set to become a Portuguese citizen.
Multiple sources have reportedly claimed Philip Shaibu is almost done with his plans of seeking dual citizenship from Portugal.
While some claim the reason for Philip Shaibu seeking for citizenship from Portugal was as a result of his apprehension on the way forward if they lose the coming September 19th Governorship election.
Others reported that Philip Shaibu this year bought a private estate in Portugal worth over 9.5 million dollars and because of that he was eligible for citizenship.
Our source working directly with Philip Shaibu claims the Deputy Governor is seeking dual citizenship because of his private reasons and that should not be a subject of concern to anyone.
He pleaded we respected the Deputy Governors choice on his private affairs.
In our subsequent bulletin, we would be looking at the voluminous document as shared by the Alliance For Youth Awareness making weighty allegations against the Obaseki’s administration.
Recall at the wake of Obaseki’s cross over to the PDP over 20 Billion was alleged to be rained on the party by Obaseki.
