PDP chieftain faults EFCC's tactics

Legit.ng earlier reported that the EFCC had been accused of putting up a media trial against the immediate past governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello.

Rilwan Olanrewaju, a chieftain of the PDP, made the allegation in an interview with Legit.ng, citing the return of funds from the American International School only happened in the media and not through the court.

The PDP chieftain maintained that the EFCC appeared not to have been serious with the fight against corruption and only encouraged politicians to steal more.
