The Kogi State government has threatened to sue the EFCC if they do not withdraw the statement accusing the government of concealing 19.3 billion in salary bailout funds for Sterling Bank within the next 48 hours.

Kogi State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Kingsley Fanwo, who denied the allegation, said the EFCC is misleading Nigerians and its goal is to defame Kogi State’s Governor’s name.

The Kogi state government accused the Kogi government of using salary bailout money to fix the deposit for Sterling Bank Plc account to yield interest instead of paying workers.
