The news in circulation right now is that, the Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Peter Egba and Accountant General, Joseph Adie of Cross River State spent the chunk of the week answering the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) operatives on issues concerning the Cross River Garment Factory.

It is still unclear exactly when the duo were picked up but reliable sources informed media men that Peter Egba returned on Wednesday while the Accountant General is still in the EFCC’s South-South zonal office in Port Harcourt.

The source also said their arrest was in response to a petition by several Cross Riverians who queried the set-up of the Garment Factory, one of Governor Ben Ayade’s signature projects.

It is alleged that there is no clear definition as to the ownership and financing of the project with allegations rife that the commissioner had cooked books and documents for it to pass as credible.

Efforts to get comments from the Commerce and Industry commissioner proved futile as several calls to his line at 09:49 AM, 09:50 AM, 09:51 AM Friday morning rang and he did not take the calls.

Two text messages to his line 09:55AM and 09:56AM have not being replied either.

Crossriverwatch.com said they contacted Wilson Uwujaren, the EFCC spokesman at 09:58AM Friday, nothing concerning the invitation was discussed as the line became distorted after introductions and when his phone was dialled three more times at 10:00AM (twice) and 10:01 AM, it rang and he did not take his call.
