The management of the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission has denied the arrest and detention of its Chief Executive Officer, Ms. Yewande Sadiku by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
The NIPC said reports that Sadiku was arrested were false, adding that the CEO voluntarily honoured an invitation by EFCC and responded to the issues raised.
“The NIPC affirms that Yewande Sadiku is a diligent public servant who is proud of her service to Nigeria. She is deeply committed to governance and accountabilty and therefore challenges anyone with evidence of wrongdoing by her in her service to the NIPC to make it public,” the commission said.
According to the NIPC, the petition being investigated by the EFCC contains issues that have been investigated by other anti-corruption agencies, none of whom has indicated that Sadiku has any case.
