All is not well in the Abuja office of the Anti-Corruption Network, as yet to be identified persons gained illegal entry on Wednesday night and ransacked the office.
Mr. Dino Melaye, the Executive Secretary of the anti-graft organisation, in an interview, alleged that the invasion was masterminded by agents of those the ACN had accused of contract scam.
Melaye, a former House of Representatives member, said, “Our office was burgled at the dead of the night on Wednesday. They ransacked all the offices and threw our documents around.
“We suspect that those who came were looking for documents we used to establish cases of financial infractions at the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs and the others we have threatened to expose.
“Unfortunately for them, the documents are neither in the office nor in my house. If the burglars had come for the documents, they will never get them.
“If it is to intimidate us, I want to state without any fear that we cannot be threatened.”
While describing the various text messages and electronic mails to the group as hollow threats, Melaye stated that no amount of intimidation and death threat would dissuade the group from the path of ridding the country of corruption.
Chairman, Board of Trustess of the group, Mr. Independence Ogunlewe, said if anyone felt that his sensibility had been offended in the crusade embarked upon by the anti-corruption group, such issues of fraud should have been addressed rather than resorting to conducts unbecoming of a public official.
