President Muhammadu Buhari’s Personal Assistant on Social Media, Mrs. Lauretta Onochie has said that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is only after those who have stolen items in their possession.
She said this while reacting to the accusations by former First Lady, Patience Jonathan that Buhari ‘s government is persecuting her.
In a series of tweets, Lauretta asked Mrs. Jonathan if she has in her possession items that attract the EFCC.
“Again, there must be something about you that attracts the EFCC. EFCC is only attracted to those who have stolen items. Do you have?
“Madam, under your husband’s administration, perversion of the course of justice was standard. Under Buhari’s administration, it’s forbidden”, she tweeted.
On Monday Patience Jonathan released a statement that she is being persecuted for her role during the 2015 presidential election.
According to her, it is normal for her to support her husband just as Aisha supported Buhari in all the elections he contested against Jonathan.
Hence, she called on the President to caution the acting Chairman of the EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, against harassing her.
