Ex Gov Amaechi boasted no one has the right to probe me

The immediate past Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, has affirmed that no one can probe him.

Amaechi was reacting to recent report that he and former governors: Rabiu Kwankwaso (Kano); Sullivan Chime (Enugu); Babatunde Fashola (Lagos); Godswill Akpabio (Akwa Ibom); Sule Lamido (Jigawa); Shehu Shema (Katsina) and Martin Elechi of Ebonyi State were being probed by the Independent Corrupt Practices and related offences Commission.

Speaking on behalf of the ex-governor, Tony Okocha, a former aide to Amaechi, said his boss was not afraid of ICPC or the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission as long as the probe was not a witch-hunt.

According to him, Governor Nyesom Wike was only out to rubbish his predecessor.

“I have always said that Amaechi is not afraid of the EFCC or the ICPC as long as such probe is not a witch-hunt. Again, there is a court order that the EFCC or other agency like it cannot probe any government official in the state. Wike is a beneficiary of that court order.

“Until that court order is vacated, the ICPC or the EFCC have no right to investigate Amaechi. Since what they are going to investigate is his (Amaechi’s) activities while in government, the EFCC and the ICPC do not have such right based on the standing court order,” he told Punch.
