The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Nigeria has alerted the public about a letter supposedly from the office of the Chief of Staff to President Goodluck Jonathan, mandating the commission to initiate discreet investigation against some prominent political figures.
- The EFCC gave the hint about the fake letter in a statement by its spokesman
- It says the document was forged with an intention to mislead the people
- It released copies of the original letter and the fake one
In a statement by the commission’s spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, the EFCC urged the public to discountenance the said letter, as it is a forged document intended to mislead the people.
“The features of the letter are markedly different from that on a genuine letter from the office of the Chief of Staff to the president.
“As evidence that this is a clear forgery, we reproduce below the fake letter alongside a copy of an authentic letter from the same office,” the anti-graft agency said.
Below are the copies of the letters released by the EFCC.
