The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday said it has uncovered plans by some politically exposed persons (PEPs) to flee the country after their tenure on May 29.
The PEPs include governors, ministers and political appointees under watch.
In a statement issued by its Head of Media and Publicity, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC asked its international partners to frustrate the escape of the PEPs.
The statement said: “Again, the commission wishes to alert the public about plans by some of the alleged corrupt politically exposed persons to flee the country ahead of May 29.
“The commission is working in close collaboration with its international partners to frustrate these escape plans and bring those involved to justice.”
