The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has challenged the Akwa Ibom State Government to provide evidence that any of its bank account in Nigeria was frozen at anytime.

The challenge, was thrown against the backdrop of the claim by the government, through Commissioner for Information, who said on Wednesday, that the accounts of the state had been frozen by the anti-graft agency, promising to provide the details soon.

But the EFCC, said he should not delay any further in providing the evidence, while denying that anything of the sort ever happened.

The commission, in a statement, said: “We challenge the state government to name the banks in which the accounts were reportedly frozen, the account numbers and the amount standing in the accounts to prove to the world that indeed what they are saying is true.

“There is no reason to freeze the accounts since Akwa Ibom state government and the commission are already in court over the movements of state funds.

“The case is already at the Appeal Court since they challenged our powers to investigate the accounts of the state and the matter has not yet been determined and we cannot embark on self-help.

“We believe strongly that some elements are deliberately trying to blackmail the EFCC by boldly lying against the commission all in a veiled bid to drag it into politics. This is quite unfortunate and a disservice to this country.”
