A civic group has petitioned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over an alleged case of money laundering in banking transactions involving the National Assembly between 2009 and 2015.
In the petition, signed by the chairman of the Civil Society Network against Corruption, CSNAC, Olanrewaju Suraju, the coalition stated that the federal legislature led by the Clerk, Salisu Maikasuwa, his predecessor, Yemi Ogunyomi, and their representatives, extensively violated the Money Laundering Act (2004, 2011) in banking transactions leading to the withdrawals of about N42 billion of public funds.
Taking its cue from a PREMIUM TIMES report, Mr. Suraju noted that it is unfortunate that lawmakers and the parliament, paid billions of naira from the nation’s resources as remuneration for law making, acted the way they did.
