The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) posted a notice of investigation on the building of the Bauchi State Environmental Protection Agency (BASEPA) early Thursday morning.
WikkiTimes learned that the anti-corruption agency directed both staff of the agency and other visitors to stay away from the premises of the agency, adding that it is conducting an investigation.
However, the details of the investigation are not yet public.
When our correspondent visited the office complex of the agency, staff could be seen going about their lawful business without panic.
Dr Kabir Ibrahim, Director-General BASEPA confirmed the development without additional details.
He said until he gets sufficient information as to why the anti-corruption agency pasted the ‘keep off’ inscription on the head office of BASEPA, he could not give further comments.
An unconfirmed report indicates that this development might not be too far from the recent privatisation of public assets by the current government in Bauchi State.
WikkiTimes recalls that state-owned companies the Bauchi state government privatised a few months ago include Bauchi Meat Factory, Bauchi Furniture Company, Bauchi State Fertilizer and Blending Company, Galambi Cattle Ranch as well as leasing of Zaranda Hotels, Wikki Hotels and Tours all in a bid to create job opportunities and improve economic activities in the state.
