This was disclosed by Dele Oyewale, the Head Media and Publicity of the EFCC.

“This invariably means that the so-called list is a disingenuous fabrication designed to achieve motives known only to the authors.

“The public is enjoined to ignore the report as it is false and misleading.

“The media is advised to endeavour to crosscheck facts pertaining to matters under investigation with the Commission to avoid misleading the public with false and inaccurate reports,” the statement concluded.
