    NABDA staff arrested for allegedly attempting to collect N500, 000 to “kill” a with EFCC

    By Emmanuel Udom

    Samson Irefin, a of the National Biotechnology Development Agency, NABDA, is in trouble. He was arrested on Friday, September 11, 2015, while attempting to dupe a contractor of the National Agency for Food and Drug  Administration and Control (NAFDAC).

     Wilson Uwujaren, head, media & publicity for the anti-graft agency name the contractor as: Liuideco Global Services Limited, where the suspect attempted to dupe on the pretext that he can help “kill” a pending investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission,(EFCC).

     According to Uwujaren, the suspect was picked up by operatives of the EFCC in the early hours of Friday September 11, 2015 in the premises of a new generation bank in Abuja, as he attempted to collect the sum of N500,000 which he had demanded from his victim to “” Kill” the case.

     The sting operation was made possible by the courage of the would-be victim who contacted the EFCC after Irefin made his approach, claiming he has influence in the EFCC to get him a soft-landing.

     But convinced he had done nothing to warrant investigation by the EFCC, or a ransom to be spared the ordeal of investigation, alerted the Commission, where he was advised to play along.

     From that moment, Irefin was under close watch, with his every move being monitored by the anti- graft agency, culminating in his arrest this morning.

    The suspect will be charged to court after investigation is concluded.

    The EFCC image maker however said that the arrest of the suspect brought to the fore the antics of some fraudsters, who have been going about, defrauding members of the public by demanding for money to stop the EFCC from investigating petitions supposedly written against them.
