PANDEF alleges persecution of South South indigenes, asks Buhari to rejig EFCCPAN Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), yesterday, alleged persecution and harassment of persons from the South-South geopolitical zone by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The group claimed “media trial” and persecution of former public office holders, particularly from the South-South zone and other parts of southern Nigeria, by the anti-graft agency, noting that such action is not only unethical but also despicable and irksome.

This was contained in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Ken Robinson, who asked the EFCC to stop the practice immediately, stressing that the law states that an accused is “innocent until proven guilty” by a competent court of law.

Robinson noted that the organisation would not condone corruption in any way, but decried the manner the EFCC carries out its operations.

According to him, the EFCC has continued to conduct its operations in a manner that depicts complete disrespect for the rule of law and fundamental human rights of citizens, as enshrined in the 1999 Constitution (as amended).
