Twitter has been responding to Timipre Sylva, former governor of Bayelsa state’s retrieval of 48 of his property seized by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) during the administration of Goodluck Jonathan.
After EFCC seized the houses, located in choice places in Abuja, it slammed 50-count charges against Sylva. However, the case was struck out late last year, prompting public insinuation that Sylva reclaimed his property because of his membership of the ruling party.
Below are some reactions on social media:
EFCC quietly returns Sylva’s loots n properties
While,same agency is just waking up to persecute Patience Jonathan
Where is the change?

Efcc can only succeed against yahoo boiz & small small thieves cos they don’t have money to pay SAN. If not, Efcc won’t win any case

Sylva is one who took N50bn bond for Bayelsa in a period of high oil prices & huge derivation payments. Now, EFCC lets him off? Shocked

48 houses… same EFCC that seized it, returns it. Suddenly, a once corrupt Man, is purged of all corruption. Though he can’t pay salaries

It is a shame that lots of Nigerians brought Buhari to power to fight the disease called corruption but only for him to reward Ex-Gov Sylva

EFCC is just a government tool created by Obj to get at opposition. Now people without WAEC certificate are using them too. Disaster!
