After two days of grilling over a corruption petition concerning the eight years of his stewardship as Governor of Akwa Ibom State, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, is now weighing options on whether it had gathered enough evidence to charge Senator Godswill Akpabio to court.
An EFCC source told Our reporter, yesterday, that the commission was yet to decide if the former governor should be charged to court after interrogating him for two days, during which the Senate Minority Leader, was shown details of the expenditure, which the agency considered questionable.
However, the official, who pleaded anonymity because the commission was yet to make its position public, said that investigation on Akpabio had not been concluded and that he could still be summoned in connection with the probe being conducted by the agency.
The official said: “I can tell you that once we conclude the current phase of investigation on the former governor, we will decide if there is enough evidence to charge him to court.
“Once we are satisfied that we have a good case against him, we shall prosecute him.”
