Sylva’s in-laws accuse Jonathan of fresh onslaught against ex-gov
In an apparent plot targeted at former Bayelsa State governor, Chief Timipre Sylva, men of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) stormed the Abuja residence of his brother-in-law, Mr. Richie Imoh Tommy, early Friday morning.
They conducted a thorough search of the house, and when they found nothing incriminating, they produced a bag which they said contained cocaine.
On that basis,Tommy was arrested and has been denied access to his lawyers.
Tommy completely denies ownership of the said bag, and wonders why even without a test or investigation, EFCC would claim to have found cocaine in his house. Besides, it remains curious how EFCC suddenly became a drug-busting organ,a statement by Patrick Umoh personal assistant to Mr. Tommy said
Tommy believes that the EFCC assault on his residence and the allegation of a cocaine-laden bag is another desperate mission targeted at his in-law, the former Bayelsa State governor, by agents of President Goodluck Jonathan.
