The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has dismissed claims that one of its operatives, Abubakar  Madaki was involved in four-million naira alleged extortion.


Reports in some national dailies had claimed that MADAKI acted as an aide to EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, but the spokesman for the anti-graft agency, Wilson Uwujaren, said that was not true.


Madaki is alleged to have obtained the sum of four million naira in a bid to secure bail for one Abdulhamid Mahmud Zari, who is being investigated by the agency for alleged money laundering.


However; the EFCC spokesman said there was no truth in the media report, which he said was contrived to malign and impugn the reputation of Madaki.


Wilson Uwujaren noted that as an operative of EFCC, Madaki has handled several high profile investigations without blemish.



Uwujaren claimed that the damning publication was part of a vengeful script by Zari and his cohorts to impugn the integrity of EFCC agent and bring him to public ridicule.
