Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has said that the Federal Government will continue to make more arrest of suspected looters of the national treasury and put them on trial despite the difficulty in putting them behind bars.

He also said corruption was fighting back, as represented in the desperation by some “corrupt politicians” to ensure that President Muhammadu Buhari was pushed out of power.

Osinbajo spoke in Akure on Thursday while launching the National Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) in the state.

“We will continue to put them on trial even if they are not thrown into jail yet,” the vice president said.

“We shall continue to arrest those who stole the nation’s money.

"They said we have not been able to convict anybody, we are not bothered, we shall continue to arrest and prosecute them. Let the case remain in court.

“The corruption is desperately fighting back so that they can come back to power. God will make it impossible,” Professor Osinbajo who is also a pastor prayed. 

He said those clamouring for the exit of the present government were those who wanted to continue to perpetrate corruption in the country.
