The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Most Revd. Mathew Kukah, yesterday visited the headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Abuja.
According to a statement by the commission’s spokesman, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, Kukah met with Femi Fani-Kayode, Musiliu Obanikoro and a former presidential spokesperson, Reuben Abati, among others.
He said that Kukah was reportedly conducted round the EFCC’s detention facilities by the acting chairman of the commission, Mr Ibrahim Magu.
Uwujaren said Kukah expressed delight that the detainees were in high spirits despite the discomfort of temporary restriction.
“I discussed with some detained suspects like Femi Fani-Kayode, Musiliu Obanikoro and Reuben Abati, and I am quite pleased they are looking cheerful.
“I was also happy with the humility of the acting chairman who took me round and the way he interacted with the detainees.
“This is what is important for our country so that nobody takes these kind of things personal. I am happy I came,” Kukah said..
Kukah said that well-meaning Nigerians like himself were staff of EFCC to the extent that they wanted a better country and were doing what was needed to be done.
“We’ll continue to pray that God guides you, keeps you safe and ensure that we build a country that we all will be proud of.
