Abuja – Chairperson of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Professor Itse Sagay has reportedly asked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to declare former minister of justice, Mohammed Adoke wanted.
Adoke, who was invited by the anti-graft agency in December 2015 to answer charges of his alleged involvement in the Malabu oil scandal has ignored the invitation, claiming that some powerful political opponents in the country were behind it (invitation).
According to Punch, Sagay said Adoke was testing the collective will of Nigerians by refusing to honour the EFCC invitation.
"Anyone that is invited by the EFCC is duty-bound to make himself available. It is just like the police inviting you and the moment you don’t honour the invitation, they will arrest you. So, it is a sign of respect to invite a person," Sagay was quoted as saying.
