Former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Prof Chukwuma Soludo, has claimed that was not arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as was published in some national dailies. Soludo said he was invited by the EFCC to make clarifications on some issues on a matter under investigation.
According to a statement from Soludo’s media office, and made available to journalists in Abuja, Soludo voluntarily went to the EFCC office to honour the commission’s invitation.
The statement, which was signed by Bonaventure Melah, said Soludo was neither arrested nor escorted to the EFCC office by operatives of the commission as was reported.
The statement reads in part, “we want to put it on record that the media reports that Professor Soludo was arrested by the operatives of the EFCC in Abuja are totally false, or to say the least, written in error.
“The fact of the matter is that the EFCC wrote a letter to Soludo, inviting him to their Abuja office on January 10, 2013.
