EFCC recorded 113 convictions in six months – Magu


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has recorded 113 convictions nationwide between January and June, its Acting Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, said on Friday.

Magu, according to a statement by the commission’s spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, told stakeholders at an interactive meeting that the convictions were made possible by their contributions and support.

The EFCC boss reportedly vowed not to spare the corrupt despite the prevailing obstacles in the anti-graft war.

“We will not fail to bring to book those who have corruptly stolen our commonwealth and thereafter organise to destabilise the anti-corruption initiatives.

“I will not relent, I will fight for the interest of our citizens and our children’s future,” he said.

Magu reiterated his position that corruption is at the root of recent separatist agitations in parts of the country, and urged all patriotic Nigerians to join forces against those tendencies.

Civil society leaders, who spoke at the forum, urged the commission to step up its awareness creation activities on the prevention of corruption.

They urged the EFCC to create communication strategies that would motivate the masses to join the anti-corruption crusade.
