Abati honoured our invitation —EFCC

THE Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Tuesday, said former presidential spokesman, Dr Reuben Abati, honoured its invitation on Monday.

This was contrary to media reports that Abati was “arrested and brought” to the commission’s office.

“Former Special Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Media and Publicity, Dr Reuben Abati, on Monday, honoured an invitation by the EFCC at the agency’s headquarters in Abuja. “He is currently telling operatives of the commission his role in the alleged mismanagement of the nation’s resources through his office.

“We shall keep you posted,” the anti-graft agency said on its Twitter handle on Tuesday.
