Senator Ike Ekweremadu, the former Deputy President of the Nigerian Senate, has dismissed as fake, the report that he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), assuring his supporters that there was nothing to worry about.
In a statement by his Media Adviser, Uche Anichukwu, the senator said the report, like others before it, represented only the “unholy imagination of the authors and their sponsors”
In a post on his verified Facebook account, @iamekweremadu, the Senator said: “My attention has been called to a fake story making the round purporting that I was arrested by the EFCC. I could not have bothered about such spurious tales, but for the concerns shown by my friends and supporters through calls and messages.
“There was no such arrest and I have never been arrested by the EFCC.
“The public should, therefore, ignore this and other such hatchet reports and smear campaigns as they only represent the unholy imaginations of the authors and their sponsors”.
