THE Minority Leader, Osun State House of Assembly, Honourable Timothy Owoeye has stated that the Economic and Finance Crimes Commission (EFCC) has started working on the statements made by the 26 legislators who were recently invited to Abuja by the commission.
Owoeye stated this at Ilare, Obokun Local Government Council Area of Osun State where he attended the burial church service of of the two Action Congress (AC) members, late, Fajuyi who died in a ghastly motor accident recently.
According to the minority leader, the 26 legislators were invited by the commission, based on the earlier petition sent to it on the controversial constituency projects fund paid into salary accounts of the 26 legislators, which was said to be alien to due process.
He stated that on getting to Abuja, the legislators met the operation manager of the commission to whom the 26 legislators made their statements on constituency projects.
Owoeye stated that they were made to sit together irrespective of political affiliations but they were made to signify their political parties, stating that based on the statement of the individual legislators, the commission’s staff have arrived Osun State to verify the claims made in the statements.
He said that there was nothing to investigate with the eleven Action Congress legislators, since the money deposited into their private accounts by the embattled governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola in collaboration with the Speaker of the Assembly, Hon Adejare Bello has been returned to the coffers of the state government.
