The operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) who stormed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Zamfara State office early today, have recovered four bags containing money believed to be part of the N84.6 million ad hoc staff allowances diverted by officials of the commission.
The EFCC operatives who arrived at the INEC Gusau office at about 11.20 am, left the premises at 1.40 pm in a white- coloured Toyota Hiace bus, carrying the four Ghana-must-go bags containing the cash. According to a source, the four Ghana-must-go bags were recovered from the accountant’s office.
The source added that some documents were also recovered from the accountant’s office.
He said the INEC officials who were arrested by the EFCC after the search, were taken away alongside the money and documents recovered.
However, mixed reactions were said to be trailing the visit of the EFCC operatives. While some are sympathetic to the suspected officials involved in the alleged fraud, saying they might have been roped in the scam, others believed that most of those suspected were known for their greed and their arrest served them right.
