The chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has spoken on what awaits perpetrators of crime in Nigeria. He has said no one will go unpunished irrespective of the political affiliations, religion or tribe.
Magu had spoken about this in a programme on Kwara State Television known as the “Morning Show”
The EFCC chairman, who had been represented by Isyaku Sharu, the head of EFCC Kwara Zonal Office, said: “The fight against corruption is not about religion, it is not about your tribe, it is not about political parties, it is for the interest of all Nigerians and for the future of our great country.
“When corruption strives, foreign investors will run away, no country will come and do business with you; as we speak now, Nigeria is no longer on the blacklist of corrupt countries, because of the intervention of the EFCC.
“Why we are able to achieve this is because there is no interference by anyone in the activities and operations of the Commission.”
He said: “I want to thank the good people of Kwara State, for sharing information with us.
“We have a large number of properties that are lined up for final forfeiture.
“There are civil servants in Kwara State that are not receiving more than N90, 000 in a month, but they have billions of naira in their bank accounts, these calls for investigation.”
“When we came on board, we arrested many internet fraudsters across the 16 Local Government Areas of Kwara State, and as at today, we have secured 19 convictions in this regards,” he said, and urged the citizens to engage in sensitisation and public awareness geared towards value reorientation.
