New EFCC Boss has a Zero Record of Corruption.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said its newly-appointed chairman, Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa has no record of corruption.

It said Bawa was never arrested or detained over the sale of any assets.


It explained the disposal of forfeited trucks in the Port Harcourt zonal office through public auction was conducted after the exit of Bawa as Zonal Head.


The EFCC made the clarifications in a statement by its Head of Media and Publicity, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren.


The statement said: “The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been drawn to a report by an online publication, Peoples Gazette, alleging that Mr. Adulrasheed Bawa, the Chairman-designate of the Commission, was arrested and detained by the Agency under former Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, over illegal sale of 244 forfeited trucks to proxies in Port Harcourt.

“The publication claims that the illegal sale was uncovered by the suspended Secretary to the Commission, Ola Olukoyede, who alerted the former chairman, Ibrahim Magu, leading to Bawa’s detention and subsequent redeployment to the EFCC Academy, Abuja.

“The Commission wishes to state categorically that, Mr. Bawa was never arrested or detained over the sale of any assets. As Zonal Head of the Port Harcourt Office of the Commission in 2019, Bawa’s responsibilities did not include the sale of assets as the Commission has a full-fledged Directorate of Assets Forfeiture and Recovery Management, which remit such matters reside.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the disposal of finally forfeited trucks in the Port Harcourt Zonal Office through public auction was conducted after the exit of Bawa as Zonal Head. It is therefore illogical for him to have been indicted over an auction that was not superintendent by him.
