PDP senators split over probe of EFCC chairman

25 August 2015, 14:44

Abuja - A crack has crept into the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) caucus in the Senate over the probe of the Chairman of the Economic and Financial  Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Lamorde, reports NewsDay.

The party caucus has disassociated itself from a petition submitted by one of its members against Lamorde.

The petition was submitted by Senator Peter Nwaobosh from Delta State

But the PDP caucus to which Nwaoboshi belongs has opposed the probe of the allegation.

The PDP senators are angry with Nwaoboshi  for trying to subvert the Senate plenary by presenting a petition on the same subject already dealt with by the Senate.

The caucus in a statement released on Monday said the probe was ill-timed and should be discontinued.

The statement was signed by the Senate Minority Leader, Sen. Godswill Akpabio, Sen. Phillip Aduda (FCT), Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha (Taraba) and Senator Abiodun Olujimi (Ekiti).
