He also explained that the claims by former governor Chime after he decamped to APC that he had no case with EFCC was false and unfounded.

According to him, the commission has recovered N60m out of the N450m of the 2015 PDP campaign fund from the state.

He said, “Don’t listen to what politicians tell you. Chime and Rita Mbah are suspects and under investigation of the EFCC.

“We are doing our job professionally irrespective of whatever political party anyone of them belongs. Crime has no expiry date. Those money remaining with the two suspects over the 2015 campaign fund will be recovered.

“We have not recovered all the money yet but we are doing that on monthly basis.”

Babalola added that the commission was also investigating abandoned road projects and Independent Power Projects in the South East with the aim of prosecuting defaulting contractors.
