JONATHAN IN FRESH ONSLAUGHT AGAINST SYLVA
In an apparent plot targeted at former Bayelsa State governor, Chief
Timipre Sylva, men of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission
(EFCC) stormed the Abuja residence of his brother-in-law, Mr. Richie
Imoh Tommy, early Friday morning.
They conducted a thorough search of the house, and when they found
nothing incriminating, they produced a bag which they said contained
On that basis, Mr. Tommy was arrested and has been denied access to his lawyers.
Mr. Tommy completely denies ownership of the said bag, and wonders why
even without a test or investigation, EFCC would claim to have found
cocaine in his house. Besides, it remains curious how EFCC suddenly
became a drug-busting organ.
Mr. Tommy believes that the EFCC assault on his residence and the
allegation of a cocaine-laden bag is another desperate mission
targeted at his in-law, the former Bayelsa State governor, by agents
of President Goodluck Jonathan.
