Those threatening EFCC Boss will have to deal with us first—Arewa Groups
EMERGENCY DIGEST- Arewa Youth Assembly (AYA) says it is ready to fight anybody that threatens the Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Abdulrasheed Bawa.
It comes days after Bawa said he had been receiving death threats from high-profile figures since he became head of the anti-graft agency.
At a press conference, speaker of the Arewa Youth Assembly, Mohammed Salihu Danlami, said Bawa must not be deterred from doing the right thing. “Any attack or threat on the Chairman is a threat on us and we will be forced to investigate who made the threat and will use the law to deal with the person directly to act as deterrence to any other person nursing such thought,” he said.
“This threat should not be taken for granted. We as Youths of this country have shown our support and respect for the Chairman from when he was appointed and we are ready to stand behind him to accomplish his task”.
The group stressed that threatening the EFCC Boss is a setback in the fight against corruption adding, “Money meant for infrastructure, health, education, roads, etc has over the years been embezzled by few individuals. As concerned Nigerians, our objectives and mission is to see how to end corruption in Nigeria,”
