Akwa Ibom State Government has reacted to the Nation Newspaper of August 12,2018 alleging that N1.4b belonging to Akwa Ibom State Government was traced to 11 Accounts by the Economic Financial & Crimes Commission (EFCC).

In a press release signed by a senior government official, Mr. Charles Udoh the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, states that Akwa Ibom State Government has served EFCC “notices of contempt and would not be dragged into a public discuss on a matter that is patently sub juice” from a Federal High Court in Uyo.

The statement further states “that this a false allegation and a desperate face saving effort by the EFCC to justify the unlawful freezing of accounts of the Akwa Ibom State Government which attracted widespread public condemnation.”
