Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ola Olukoyede, says the anti-graft agency would reopen investigations into allegations of N70 billion money laundering levelled against the Minister of State for Defence, Bello Mattawalle while he was in office as Governor of Zamfara State.


The antigraft boss said this while addressing Zamfara Alternative Forum, which protested to the commission’s headquarters in Abuja, demanding that the agency revisits the fraud allegation case against the former governor.


Speaking to reporters through the EFCC’s Acting Director of Public Affairs, Wilson Uwujaren, vowed that the agency under the new administration would not condone corruption, and will continue to review all high-profile cases he inherited.


Mattawalle who is still grappling with the verdict of the supreme court which upheld the victory of Dauda Lawal of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as Zamfara Governor, is yet to respond to both the allegations of misappropriation and the verdict of the supreme court.
