Nobody is too large to be the subject of an investigation, according to Ola Olukoyede, Executive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Olukoyede delivered the warning in Abuja when the Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, Musa Adamu Aliyu, paid him a courtesy visit in the wake of the probe of Betta Edu, suspended Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation.

A leaked memo revealed how Edu gave the Accountant General of the Federation instructions to transfer N585 million intended for the vulnerable into Oniyelu Bridget Mojisola’s personal account.

President Bola Tinubu suspended Edu in response to the outcry from Nigerians and directed the EFCC to conduct a comprehensive investigation into the cash embezzlement.

Under Tinubu’s leadership, the EFCC Chairman declared, corruption has no place to hide.

Olukoyede was quoted by EFCC spokesman Dele Oyewale in a statement as saying: “Tinubu is offering the right atmosphere for anti-graft activities, both for the EFCC and ICPC and no Nigerian is immune to investigation for any corruption allegation.

”We believe that with the kind of President we have, who is ready and willing to do the right thing and from what we have seen in recent times and in the last 48 hours, it is clear that he has provided leadership and created the atmosphere for us to work.

“So there is no hiding place for the corrupt. We must give our best, we must be committed and give the President the right support he needs.

“Nobody is too big to be investigated in this country. Once you are not playing according to the rules, we will investigate you.”
