The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said that it was not prosecuting the President of the Senate Bukola Saraki in the recently concluded false declaration of assets case.

In a series of tweets on its twitter handle @officialEFCC, the anti-corruption agency made it clear to Nigerians that it was not the prosecutor at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) trial.

The EFCC also disowned counsel, Rotimi Jacobs saying that he is an independent anti-corruption lawyer to the state and could be counsel to any organisation.

During the two years trial of Saraki, Rotimi Jacobs was always referred to as counsel to the EFCC, but the EFCC clarifies that he is not attached to the commission.

Meanwhile, the clarification of the EFCC has generated many reactions: While some Nigerians hailed the commission, others bashed it for losing many of its cases.

They called on the EFCC to deliver high profile convictions not just recovery of loots or forfeiture of money and assets.

The President of the Senate Bukola Saraki was on Wednesday, discharged and acquitted of all 18 count charges bothering on declaration of assets brought against him in the CCT.
