The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has disowned a recent gloating tweet that announced the imminent revival of a criminal case against outgoing Governor of Ekiti, Ayo Fayose .
In a statement on Monday night , spokesman of the commission , Mr Wilson Uwujaren , said the “purported tweet does not represent the views of the EFCC” .
The tweet , which appeared on the EFCC’ s verified Twitter handle , @ officialEFCC on Sunday afternoon , said the commission had dusted a N 1 . 3 billion fraud case file against Fayose .
It came few hours after the Independent National Electoral Commission announced the results of Saturday ’ s governorship election in Ekiti.
Fayose ’ s protege , Prof. Kolapo Olushola – Eleka of the Peoples Democratic Party , lost the election to Mr Kayode Fayemi of the All Progressives Congress .
The tweet read: “ The parri (party ) is over , the cloak of immunity torn apart , and the staff broken. “ Ekiti Integrated Poultry Project /Biological concepts Limited N 1 . 3 billion fraud case file dusted off the shelves . See you soon . ”
The post, accompanied with the photograph of what looks like a dilapidated poultry structure, was deleted about three hours later .
But before then it had gone viral online, eliciting criticisms from many Nigerians who interpreted it as a reflection of the commission ’ s partisanship .
Uwujaren said , “In the opinion of most commentators , the tweet betrayed the partisanship of the EFCC in the political contest in Ekiti State.
“Against the background , the commission is constrained to state that the purported tweet does not represent the views of the EFCC.
“ As a law enforcement organisation the commission is apolitical and was not involved in the recent Ekiti election .
“ It, therefore , has no reason to gloat over the political misfortune of any candidate or political god – father . ”
He said although there was a subsisting criminal charge against Fayose, the fate of the charge would be determined by the Federal High Court , Ado Ekiti, at the expiration of his tenure , not the EFCC.
