Deputy President of the Senate , Ike Ekweremadu , has said he was not interrogated on Wednesday by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, neither did he fall ill as a result of the reported interrogation.Ekweremadu , in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday by his Special Adviser on Media , Uche Anichukwu , said he honoured the EFCC ’ s invitation and requested a leave to attend to his health .
The statement read , “ My attention has been drawn to false reports in some national dailies that the Deputy President of the Senate , Senator Ike Ekweremadu , developed high blood pressure in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission upon alleged presentation to him of a fresh set of purported ‘ hidden properties’ supposedly acquired by him . There is no truth to this propaganda.
“ It would be recalled that operatives of the EFCC and men of the Nigeria Police laid siege to his residence at about 6 am on Tuesday , July 24 , 2018 , requesting him to report at its headquarters at 10 am the same Tuesday . However , no letter of invitation was delivered to him until around 9 am of that day .
“ Since the siege would not allow him to honour the belated invitation the same day , he , as a law – abiding citizen, wrote to the EFCC to request another date , hence the rescheduled appointment of Tuesday , July 31 , 2018 .
“ Senator Ekweremadu honoured the 10 am appointment on the fixed date and left in the evening of the same day when he was granted bail on self – recognisance, with an understanding that he would report at the EFCC office at 10 am the next day for a continuation of the interview .
“ He reported at the EFCC on Wednesday , August 1 , 2018 , at 10 am as scheduled, but informed them that he was not feeling well , a fact the EFCC ’ s doctor confirmed . He was then allowed to leave to see his doctor and it was agreed that a new date would be fixed for the continuation of the interview . ”
According to the statement , there was no interrogation whatsoever on Wednesday , let alone presentation of the so- called additional facts that allegedly raised his blood pressure .
The statement added , “ The office feels compelled by the mischief and orchestrated media trial to put the facts straight on this particular issue. ”
