Ahead of the May 29 transfer, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) allegedly made plans for several governors and other politicians who are suspected of corruption to leave the country.
The alarm was raised by EFCC spokesperson Wilson Uwujaren in a statement released on Friday night.
According to the commission, it is currently working with its foreign allies to thwart the plans.
All political figures who engaged in corruption while holding public office would be prosecuted, the commission said.
The statement reads partly, “Again, the Commission wishes to alert the public about plans by some of the alleged corrupt politically exposed persons to flee the country ahead of May 29.
“The Commission is working in close collaboration with its international partners to frustrate these escape plans and bring those involved to justice.”
