Bamikole Omishore, a media aide to Senate President Bukola Saraki has spoken for the first time since he was accused of alleged ghost worker scam.
Hope For Nigeria had reported that Omishore allegedly enrolled his wife as a staff of the National Assembly and had been drawing salaries on her name .
The development was confirmed by the spokesman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Wilson Uwujaren.
“I can confirm that the petition is before the commission and receiving necessary attention,” Uwujaren said.
However, Omishore, speaking to Premium Times, refused to confirm or deny the allegations.
“For the avoidance of doubt, other than speculations and innuendos on pages of papers and websites, neither me nor my wife has received any copy of petition from EFCC or any other security agency.
”I will address issues contained in any petition against me when I receive it,” he said.
