BREAKING: EFCC On Secret Operation At APC Convention, Source Says

According to a high-ranking source within the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the anti-graft agency is now conducting a clandestine investigation into delegates’ inducement and vote-buying during the ruling All Progressives Congress’s ongoing presidential primary polls.

The reliable source, who spoke with our correspondent on the condition of anonymity, said, “We’re currently at the APC convention ground on a covert operation. We’re monitoring activities, and watching keenly for incidents of delegates inducement, vote-buying, and other electoral or financial fraud activities that might take place”.

The insider also confirmed to PUNCH Metro that the anti-graft bureau is conducting the undercover operation to catch potential criminals off guard.

This comes amid claims that prominent candidates in the upcoming presidential primary elections are paying delegates up to $40,000 in order to entice them to vote for them.

The EFCC stormed the Moshood Kashimawo Abiola International Stadium in Abuja during the presidential primary polls of the main opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party, exactly 10 days ago, according to PUNCH Metro.

Around 4:40 p.m., the officers arrived at the location.

The operatives rushed the venue of the PDP’s presidential primary polls in Abuja, according to the PUNCH, after accusations of alleged vote-buying and bribing of delegates at the event.
