He said: “We were at the ICPC, where we met with the chairman; also the DSS, we were also at the EFCC and concluding here at the Police Force Headquarters.”
He added that: “We have submitted the petitions, so I have done my own part, I have given my word that I will give maximum support and cooperation to the security and anti-corruption agencies to commence an investigation with immediate effect so that by the grace of God prosecution can start.”
He demanded, “thorough investigation and very quick prosecution so that we can send some people to jail.”
