A former deputy governor of Osun State and former Chairman, Senate Commiittee on Appropriation, Senator Iyiola Omisore has vowed to challenge the freezing of his account by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Omisore disclosed this in a statement which stated that, “EFCC is known for spreading rumours. Freezing my account shall amount to the tyranny and illegality acts! I won’t be surprised if EFCC can be dodging court summons, declaring me wanted and evading service! I shall ask the court to compel them to unfreeze such account, because I’m neither on trial nor found guilty.
“Rather than pursuing legal means to ensure justice, it has instead resorted to media trial and falsehood, which wouldn’t prosper under any guise. I didn’t take money from the NSA! Why this political trial-prosecution, intimidation and humiliation? EFCC won’t stop at any height to blackmail opposition. My AIT (African Independent Television) programme has attracted another falsehood to harass me! Only a few days ago, I accused EFCC of dodging court summons! I didn’t collect any money from the ONSA, I insist. I have not had any dealings with the ONSA. Last time, it was N700 million, today, it’s N1.3bn.Nigerians should be expecting higher multipliers in future! There is no such money in my account. Let the EFCC bring all findings to the court, instead of media hype.”
