The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has conveyed a letter to the Chairman of Code of Conduct Tribunal, Danladi Umar, exonerating him of alleged N10 million bribe by one AbdulRashid Owolabi.

Information on the letter is contained in a statement issued to newsmen by the Head, Press and Public Relations of the Tribunal, Ibraheem Al-hassan, on Wednesday in Abuja.

He said that the letter was addressed to the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, captioned “RE: Investigation Report RE: N10 million Bribery Allegation Against the Chairman, Code of Conduct Tribunal, Abuja.”

He stated that “the EFCC position with regards to this matter as earlier communicated to you, on allegations leveled against Justice Danladi Umar were mere suspicious and consequently insufficient to successfully prosecute the offence.

Today’s clearance letter is second to the previous one sent on March 5, 2015 during last administration of President Goodluck Jonathan through the office of the then Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim.”

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

      Saraki is guilty but this one is not guilty? clap for yourself. Youths like you are the problem we have in Nigeria. I agree Saraki is guilty so you won’t condemn what EFCC is doing here? Saraki should go to jail even when he has not being declared guilty and the judge on his case is corrupt and EFCC had to clear him but they can’t clear Saraki. We should demand for proper Justice not this one sided thing my dear. When found corrupt they should be made to pay but with the way they fight corruption in Nigeria it is totally unfair. You pick the people you like and protect them then pick the ones you dont like and prosecute them.
