The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has debunked claims that the agency has an underground cell where suspects are being detained.

This comes after a former Senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial district, Shehu Sani, accused the anti-graft agency of detaining him in an underground cell for 30 days.

However, Head of the Abuja zonal office of the EFCC, Aminu Aliyu, who led journalists round the facilities, said the commission doesn’t have such a cell in the Commission.

He said: “As you can see for yourself, we do not have underground cells here. Most of the suspects begged the judges to be taken back here because of the facility on the ground.

“They eat normal food and three times a day, we have a clinic here where detainees are first treated in case of an emergency.

“If anyone of you thinks all these have been arranged, you are welcome to come at anytime you chose, to spend time with us and see for yourself.

“If you want to visit any of our facilities across the country, you don’t need to give us prior notice of your coming. You can even arrange it as a group of reporters if you don’t want to come alone.”
