The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied any act of sabotage in the fire that gutted its Data Centre and office of the Combined Inter-Agency Task Force.
The commission’s acting Head, Media and Publicity, Mr Tony Orilade, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Thursday.
The commission’s Wuse II Zonal office, Abuja, was on Monday gutted by fire, which it attributed to electrical fault.
Orilade said that no document was destroyed in the inferno, adding that the data centre was the commission’s newsroom, which was like a store.
“There were no documents, only out-of-use computers and other accessories.
“There was no sabotage; nothing of such.
“The data system is intact, the computers in the centre were not installed; they were just packed and stored,” he said.
Orilade said that operation was still going on in the annex and that all documents and data were intact.
“We thank God for the quick intervention of the Fire Service.
“There is no course for worry,” he said.
He also reiterated the commitment of the commission to fight corruption with all sense of determination.
“The war against corruption is on top gear under the chairman, Ibrahim Magu; with his determination, definitely victory is assured,” he said.
