Ekweremadu raises alarm on alleged smear campaign against him


Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu has alleged the presidency cabal is sponsoring the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to raid his Enugu residence for the sole purpose of planting incriminating items in it.

Ekweremadu raised the alarm today, May 3 at the plenary.

He alleged that the proposed raid was to ensure his arrest, detention and indictment, with the aim of frustrating his political ambitions and that the mission to move against him was being sponsored by a cabal in the Presidency.

He alleged that they have plans to plant money and ammunition in his apartment during the raid.
