EFCC didn’t arrest PEF boss – Counsel

By Dapo Akinrefon

PRINCIPAL Counsel and Solicitor of Jiti Ogunye Chambers, Mr. Jiti Ogunye, has refuted media reports that the Executive Secretary of Petroleum Equalisation Fund, PEF, Mrs Sharon Kasali was arrested and detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for any corrupt practices.

While refuting media reports published in some newspapers (not Vanguard), Mr. Ogunye explained that   Kasali was invited by EFCC for questioning as “were four other staff before her, and all were allowed to go home.”

Ogunye explained that Kasali was confronted with an anonymous and unsigned petition written by a so-called Concerned PEF staff.

She said: “Kasali made a statement; filled an Asset Declaration Form; and was requested to surrender her international passports. She was granted bail in her own self-recognition, and allowed to go home.”
