The management of Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC) has debunked media reports that its Executive Secretary/CEO, Ms. Yewande Sadiku was arrested and detained by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday.
In a Press Statement made available to Green Savannah Diplomatic Cable, the management clarifies that Yewande voluntarily honoured an invitation by EFCC and responded to the issues raised.
The management described the CEO as a diligent public servant who is proud of her service to Nigeria adding “she is deeply committed to governance and accountability and therefore, challenges anyone with evidence of any wrongdoing by her in her service to the NIPC to make it public”.
According to NIPC,” the petitions being investigated by EFCC contain issues that have been investigated by other anti-corruption agencies, none of whom has indicated that she has any case to answer. She honoured an invitation by the EFCC on August 9, 2021; she was neither detained nor arrested.”
