The Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, has accused the chairman of the EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, of demanding $2million bribe from him.
He made the allegation amid the growing rift between the governor and the anti-graft agency.
Speaking in an interview with BBC Hausa on Friday, the governor said: “It is not just to always blame governors. It is not only governors who have treasury, the Federal government also has. What does the EFCC boss do to them?
Let him vacate office, I am telling you within 10 seconds probably more than 200 people will bring evidences of bribe he collected from them.
He knows what he requested from me but I declined. He requested a bribe of $2 million from me and I have evidence of this.
He knows the house we met, he invited me and told me the conditions. He told me governors were going to his office but I did not. If I don’t have evidence, I won’t say this.”
