A few days to the end of his tenure, he had accused the now suspended EFCC chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, of demanding a $2m bribe from him, an allegation that the anti-graft agency denied.

Matawalle, who had made the allegation in a Hausa Service interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), had pilloried the EFCC for going after governors while ignoring federal officials with big budgetary allocations.
