The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has urged the Acting President Professor Yemi Osinbajo to “direct the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris to lead the investigation of Wednesday’s attack by gunmen on the headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Abuja.
SERAP is also asking the government to bring anyone suspected to be responsible for the act to justice without delay.
The appeal follows an attack on the EFCC premises and a death threat to its official Ishaku Sharu, who heads the Foreign Exchange Malpractices Fraud Section and oversees corruption investigation involving several politically exposed persons.
The incident is said to be coming after an earlier attack on EFCC investigator, Austin Okwor, who was said to have been shot and wounded by unknown assailants in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
This was disclosed in a statement on Friday by SERAP Deputy Director, Timothy Adewale. Channels Television.
