The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Thursday denied claims that it was holding onto the assets recovered from former Bayelsa State governor, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha.

The anti-graft agency at a media briefing in Abuja asserted that the commission had since July 10, 2010, handed over all the property and funds recovered from the former governor to the state government at an open ceremony performed by Farida Waziri, the immediate past chairman of the commission.

EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, said the assets recovered from Alameyeseigha were handed over to then Governor Timipre Sylva, adding that there was nothing still left with the commission in that regard.

“I am sure some of you were witnesses in 2010, precisely July 10, 2010, when the assets recovered from Alamiyeseigha were handed over to the Bayelsa State government.

“Timipre Sylva, then governor of the state was on hand to receive the assets, which included Chelsea Hotel, Abuja from former chairman of EFCC, Mrs. Farida Waziri.

“If there are issues arising from the handling of the case, or any other case(s) for that matter, the Commission as a responsible corporate organization is willing to entertain such issues,” said Uwujaren.

The commission expressed delight that the government of Bayelsa had distanced itself from the claims, but however warned that it would not succumb to any form of blackmail from any quarters over the loot.
