Newsbreak reports that Abdulrahman Dambazau, former minister of interior, says operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes (EFCC) were not invited to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) convention.
Some operatives of the anti-graft agency were spotted at the Eagle Square, Abuja on Tuesday.
A senior official of the commission said a special team under a director in the commission was dispatched to the venue for discreet monitoring of financial transactions between delegates and agents of aspirants.
The personnel from the special team are said to be embedded in delegate stands to monitor any case of inducement.
Speaking on the presence of the EFCC, Dambazau, a party chieftain, said: “We did not invite the EFCC. We are here for physical security. Of course, we invited the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC,) but EFCC, we did not invite them.”
