The Economic and financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has vowed to investigate and melt out appropriate sanctions on their operatives, if found culpable, over the arrest of an entrepreneur in Benue State.
The anti-graft agency made this public in a press release issued from its office by the Head, Media and Publicity, Dele Oyewale who assured Nigerians that the commission will continue to act according to the law.
The press release reads: “The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to reports of a recent arrest made by its officers at a pastry firm in Makurdi, Benue State, involving Ms Mnena Ato, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Star Shawarma.
“The Commission has commenced investigations into the circumstances of her arrest and would leave no stone unturned in ensuring that all facts related to the arrest are unearthed.
It is not in the character of the EFCC to act arbitrarily and the Commission is always guided by global best practices in its operations.
“The Commission wishes to assure members of the public of its commitment to best professional practices and excellent conduct of all its men and officers.
“As the Commission continues to pursue its mandate of ridding the nation of economic and financial crimes, appropriate sanctions would be placed on whoever is found to have acted out of character regarding the Benue arrest.”
