Many have been invited by the anti-corruption agency for interrogation and came out unhurt. Only those who misappropriated funds and have skeleton in their cupboard have cause to fear.

Invitation by EFCC is never a death sentence but an avenue to clear alleged and invited personality.

Quite a lot of people who committed suicide due to one reason or the other always drop suicide note for people to know the reason behind the painful and grave decision.

Mr. Orji may have other challenges which were not in the public domain. However, committing suicide was not the best. He put his family and loved ones in serious and terrible condition that may take time before they overcome.

Meanwhile, if one looks at the way Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC is dealing with financial related fraudsters in recent time, the person may be shivering before the invitation.

Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC under Mr. Abdurosheed Bawa has raised the bar of crime free society.

The commission has exposed a lot fraudulent activity in both private and public sectors. Internet related fraudsters can narrate what the commission is doing to expose all manners of illegitimate way of making money.

The death of Mr. Orji needs to be properly investigated. The Police need to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of 59-year old man so as to give solace to family members.
