Ekiti election: No pregnant woman in our custody – EFCC
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has disclosed that it is not in the custody of a pregnant woman in connection with the recently concluded Ekiti governorship election.
The EFCC explained that all the suspects in its custody were being held by court order over allegations of vote buying during the poll.
This was contained in a statement signed by Wilson Uwujaren, the Spokesman of the EFCC, and made available to journalists in Ilorin.
Uwajaren dismissed speculations that a pregnant woman was among the suspects arrested on allegations of vote-buying during the Ekiti governorship election.
He said, “A pregnancy test conducted on all the female suspects arrested during the election at the State Hospital in Ilorin was negative."
“Earlier tests conducted in a private hospital also revealed negative results for all the female suspects.”
Uwajaren added that all the suspects were detained based on a lawful order of court, pending the conclusion of investigations.
According to him, the suspects would be charged in court as soon as investigations were finalized.
The spokesman also urged the public to ignore the wild claims about the mistreatment of the suspects.
