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

In a series of tweets on its twitter handle (@officialEFCC), the anti-corruption agency clarified to the public that its office 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 refereed to as counsel to the EFCC, but the EFCC clarifies that he is not attached to the commission.
