Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Senator Pius Anyim, has narrated his recent ordeal in the hands of the operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

in a statement signed by his Media Adviser, Sam Nwaobasi, the former SGF said he got information that some person invited by the EFCC in connection with some matter it was investigating mentioned his name in the statement made to the EFCC.

Senator Anyim said he reached out to the officer handling the matter and offered, of his own volition, to come over to the EFCC to clarify any issues around which his name was mentioned.

He said the officer was delighted and they agreed to meet in his office at the EFCC by 3 pm on Sunday, the 24th of October, 2021.

Senator Anyim said at the agreed time, he arrived at the EFCC office and was never invited by the EFCC.

“After his engagement, during which Senator Anyim was as candid as could be, to his utter surprise he was told he would not be going home that day. By the next day, the EFCC gave the conditions for his release which were met promptly.

“It took up to Tuesday the 26th for EFCC to complete their processes after which he was allowed to go home.

“Senator Anyim, as a law-abiding citizen, will always submit himself to any process required by any agency of the government in the discharge of its duties.

“Senator Anyim, though not disturbed or worried by his encounter with the EFCC, after all, he went to their office by himself, has however noted some reports in some social media platforms that deliberately distorted the facts just to call his integrity to question.

“Senator Anyim remains steadfast in his commitment to join hands with men and women of goodwill to unite, heal and advance the cause of our dear country Nigeria and will continue to offer himself and services to the pursuit of same, notwithstanding the blackmail, falsehood, misinformation, and misrepresentation that some opportunists will seek to make out of such episodes like his recent encounter with the EFCC.

“Senator Anyim is very humbled and touched by the spontaneous responses and concern shown by his numerous friends, associates, supporters, especially PDP faithful and the public. He believes that together we shall all build a better Nigeria,” the statement read.
