However, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has dismissed reports that it sent any police officers to the office of lawyer John Khaminwa in an alleged attempt to intimidate him over his submissions in the BBI appeal case.

EACC, in a series of statement on twitter, released on Sunday, said it did not even conduct any operation on Saturday when the reports emerged hence declaring them null and void.
