Don’t Interfere With The Prosecution Of Oil Subsidy Thieves – CACOL Warns Adoke

The Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders (CACOL) warns the Attorney-General of the Federation and the Minister of Justice, Mr. Mohammed Adoke not to interfere with the prosecution of the oil thieves indicted in the House of Representatives’ Report on subsidy management.

Speaking on behalf of the Coalition, Debo Adeniran, CACOL Executive Chair noted that the Minister of Justice lacks credibility to handle the herculean task of the prosecuting the persons and corporate organisations indicted in the report, coupled with his alleged investments in some of the oil companies fingered by the House of Representatives’ report.

“Mr. Mohammed Adoke has been found to be aiding and abetting crimes and criminality, he has withdrawn many corruption cases from the courts. He is a sympathizer of many corrupt Nigerians; we hope handling over the report to him is not to poke holes in the evidence contained in the report.

We are not opposed to diligent investigation and prosecution of the heartless cabals who looted public funds with impunity, but we hope this is not a delay tactic to douse the threats from every quarter, an attempt to make the time factor intervene,” Comrade Adeniran quizzed.

Stressing further, the Human Rights Activist posited that the cycle of investigation and re-investigations may be new avenues for perpetual waste of taxpayers’ money, and therefore urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to do a thorough investigation and make whatever evidence it would tender against these oil thieves watertight that can stand the fire of the accused attorneys.

Comrade Adeniran also urged the EFCC to beam its searchlight on some government agencies to expose the civil servants that connived and collaborated with the indicted people to perpetrate this heinous crime, and bring them to book in no distant time.
