Reacting to the declaration, Bribena, who is also a pastor in a popular church told the Nation: “We did not receive an invitation letter from the EFCC and were not aware of any summons or pending charge against us by the EFCC.

“It is therefore surprising that the commission will go to such length to damage our reputation and make me and my family go through ‘media trial’.”

He said the EFCC had no right to interfere in disputes between members of the cooperative society, considering the provisions of the Nigerian Cooperative Societies Act of 2004.

He added that the anti-graft agency did not invite them for interrogation before declaring them wanted.

He said that some members of the cooperative society had approved that the cooperative traded with their contributions at an Online Foreign Exchange Market for monthly returns, which ran smoothly until the unfortunate events where most of the funds were lost in the market.

He said despite the loss, he has been making efforts to recover and refund members their contribution as authorised by the general meeting of the cooperative, but the actions of the EFCC had constituted a spoke in the wheel of progress.
