EFCC’s Tweet On 6 Months Jail Term For N23mln Fraud Angers Nigerians
On Thursday the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) secured a sentence and it was proud to celebrate it.
The anti-graft agency found it necessary to let Nigerians know it is winning the war against corruption or so they think.
"#Fraud: MD of A.M. Global Energy Limited, Abubakar Mubi, arrested in 2012 for N23.5m fraud today pleaded guilty & was sentenced to 6months in prison by Justice Umar of Fed High Court, Gombe. He deceived his client that he could supply 20 trailer-load of LPFO at N62/lit".
But the tweet did not go down well with majority of Twitter users.
That tweet drew attention to the handle, something it had lost since the former handler @FSHAW walked away.
Different comments poured in, but most of them bore signs of how far Nigerians want the anti-graft war conducted.
Most of them wondered why it was just six months jail term that a person that committed a fraud of 23.5 million Naira got.
Their reactions emphasised the height of reforms that the nation's constitution and judicial system needs at this time.
