Nigerian Economic And Financial Crimes Commission Clears Air On Fake Document Ordering Probe Of APC Leaders

Nigerian Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (aka EFCC) issues a statement on a fake letter making round on the internet since yesterday, suggesting that President Jonathan had ordered the agency to probe the financial operations of APC leaders.Find the statement below; ..........and a picture showing the difference between a real document from the agency and the fake one above............

"The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, wishes to alert the public about a letter supposedly from the office of the Chief of Staff to President Goodluck Jonathan, mandating the Commission to initiate discreet investigation against some prominent political figures in the country.

The commission urges the public to discountenance the said letter as it is forged document, intended to mislead the people. The features of the letter are markedly different from that on a genuine letter from the office of the Chief of Staff to the president.

As evidence that this is a clear forgery, we reproduce below the fake letter alongside a copy of an authentic letter from the same office.
