Former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, has denied reports that he collected money from the office of former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
Omisore made the remark via a statement released on Wednesday, June 29, in reaction to reports that his accounts had been frozen by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
The statement reads:
EFCC is known for spreading rumours. Freezing my account shall amount to the tyranny and illegality acts. I won’t be surprised if the EFCC can be dodging court summons declaring me wanted and evading service. I shall ask the court to compel them to unfreeze such account because I’m neither on trial nor found guilty.
Rather than use legal means to ensure justice, it has instead resorted to media trial and falsehood, which would not prosper under any guise. I didn’t take money from the NSA. Why this political trial, prosecution, intimidation and humiliation?
EFCC won’t stop at any height to blackmail opposition. My AIT programme has attracted another falsehood to harass me. Only a few days ago, I accused the EFCC of dodging court summons.
I didn’t collect money from the ONSA, I insist. I have not had any dealings with the ONSA. Last time it was N700m, today it is N1.3bn. Nigerians should be expecting higher multipliers in future. There is no such amount of money in my account. Let the EFCC bring all findings to the court, instead of media hype.
