By Soni Daniel, Regional Editor, North
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission Friday night raised the alarm that a fake letter purportedly written by the Presidency to it to initiate discrete probe of key opposition figures in the country, was in circulation.
According to the commission, the fake letter was purportedly written and signed by the Chief of Staff to the President and ordering the agency to investigate the opponents.
“The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC wishes to alert the public about a letter supposedly from the office of the Chief of Staff to President Goodluck Jonathan, mandating the commission to initiate discreet investigation against some prominent political figures in the country.
“The commission urges the public to discountenance the said letter as it is forged document, intended to mislead the people.
“The features of the letter are markedly different from that on a genuine letter from the office of the Chief of Staff to the president.
To prove that the letter was forged, the spokesman of the EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, who signed the statement, asked. Nigerians to discountenance the document. He also reproduced the fake letter and a genuine one from the President to guide the public in discerning the fake one.
