In one of its series of tweets on its verified twitter handle @officialEFCC on Thursday, the anti-graft agency made it clear to Nigerians that it was not the prosecutor at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) trial.

In the same vein, the EFCC also disowned counsel, Rotimi Jacobs, saying that he is an independent anti-corruption lawyer to the state and could be counsel to any organisation.

During the two years trial of Saraki, Rotimi Jacobs was always referred to as counsel to the EFCC, but the EFCC clarifies that he is not attached to the commission.

It would be recalled, the senate president was on Wednesday, discharged and acquitted of all 18 count charges bothering on declaration of assets brought against him in the CCT.
