There are insinuations that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), might have begun a probe on the Osun state Governor, Rauf Aregbesola.

This is following a petition sent to the anti-graft agency by a civil society group, Civil Societies Coalition for the Emancipation (CSCEOS).

The group accused Aregbesola and some of his aides of diverting funds meant for the Local Government Councils in the state.

Punch reports that the EFCC has also sent an invitation letter to CSCEOS, inviting them to come and clarify some issues in their petition.

The CSCEOS chairman, Mr. Sulaiman Adeniyi reportedly displayed a letter from the EFCC dated May 13, 2016, with reference No: CR: 3000/EFCC/IB/T.B/VOL.1/79 which was titled, “Investigation Activities: Acknowledgement/Invitation letter.”

An excerpt of the letter from the EFCC which we obtained from Punch, reads: “This is to acknowledge the receipt of your petition dated April 4, 2016, captioned Report of Illegal Diversion of 30 Local Governments’ monthly allocations by the Osun State Governor, Mr. Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola.

“Why Civil Societies Coalition for the Emancipation of Osun State is calling for investigation and stoppage of Releasing of Local Government monthly allocations to Osun State through Mr. Rauf Aregbesola and to inform you that investigation has commenced.

“In view of the above, you are hereby requested to report to the EFCC Zonal Office at No.16 Revd. Oyebode Crescent, Iyaganku, G.R.A., Ibadan, for an interview with the undersigned through the Head, Team B, on May 17, 2016, at 10am prompt.”

Governor Rauf Aregbesola recently told newsmen that reports in the media saying the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) indicted him of diverting bailout funds are false.
