Vote Buying: EFCC Intercepts N32.4 Million in Lagos

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Friday intercepted the sum of N32,400 million allegedly suspected to be used for vote buying in Lagos State, Punch reports.

The spokesperson for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement, revealed that the recovery was made by operatives of the Lagos zonal command of the commission

He noted that the suspect involved has been taken into custody for further questioning.

Recall that EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, has implored all personnel of the commission deployed for election monitoring duties to show courage and not give room for unscrupulous persons to undermine the integrity of the elections through financial inducement.

Uwujaren added, “Tactical teams of operatives are currently on the ground in all the states of the federation and the FCT.

“Telephone hotlines have already been circulated through social media for members of the public to share information regarding financial malpractices with agents of the commission. Details of the number are available on EFCC’s social media platforms.

“Members of the public are encouraged to report anyone trying to buy or sell votes by making use of the EFCC financial crimes reporting App, Eagle Eye, which is available for download on the Google Play or Apple store.

“They can also reach the commission through our social media handle, @officialefcc or by email,”
