Former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mr Farida Waziri has said that assassination attempts were made on her life in the course of her assignment as an anti-graft Czar. She said he also had face-off and courted enemies from local and foreign shores.
Waziri made the revelations while giving her welcome address during the launching of her book titled: “One Step Ahead: Life of a Spy, Detective and Anti-Corruption Czar” in Abuja on Tuesday. According to her, the reason for writing the book was not principally to respond to the distortions and half-truths peddled against her person while in office but to properly the situate facts and issues. “I had been so grossly maligned not many people knew who the real Farida Waziri is. Fabrications from malicious quarters had created a distorted perception of my persona. When you read One Step Ahead, it will be easy to see the lies of the past for what they are. I have no doubt that after reading the book, you will be able to separate facts from fiction and let go of those mythologies.
