The Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Uche Secondus, has expressed optimism that he would get justice in the ongoing investigation into allegation of receiving cars as gift from his friend. Secondus while addressing newsmen on his detention by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), in Abuja on Thursday said that he was confronted with allegation of receiving some cars from Mr Jide Omokore who had been his friend for more than 20 years.

Secondus was invited by the EFCC on February 23 to clarify issues related to ongoing investigation by the commission. “I admitted to them that Mr Jide Omokore has given me car gifts on several occasions in the last 10 years for my personal use. “I want to state categorically that what I received from my friend, Jide Omokore were cars and buses supplied by a well-known car company, Skymit Motors apparently from credit facility Omokore has with the company. “I don’t have any knowledge of the so-called transaction the investigators are alleging he had with the NNPC,’’ he said.
