Nigeria’s anti graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), again, Wednesday sealed an Enugu multi-billion naira Shopping Mall, located beside the state House of Assembly.
Reports have it that this was the second time this year the commission was sealing the mall allegedly owned by the immediate past governor of the state, Barrister Sullivan Chime.
Operatives of the commission from its headquarters in the federal capital territory Abuja, stormed the construction site which is almost ready for commissioning and disperse the workers and everybody cited in the premises.
The Commission’s Head of media and public Affairs , in South East zone, Mr. Chris Oluka, confirmed the raid to newsmen, saying managers of the mall flouted the directive of EFCC on the construction of the building.
He said “Yes, our men went there to disperse them because they flouted our instructions , we had sealed the premises and wrote ‘Under EFCC Investigation’, but they covered the write-up with paint,”
The South Eat spokesman of the Commission, recalled that the commission had earlier in the year sealed the mall, which is located beside the Enugu State House of Assembly, by writing the inscription ‘Under EFCC Investigation’, adding that it did not deter the managers, who flagrantly continued with construction work at the site.
