See How Many Igbo People EFCC Has Jailed This Year
So, Nigeria’s economic crime fighter, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has been quite busy this year in Southeast Nigeria.
Between January and June this year, the anti-graft agency has sent no fewer than 13 people to jail in Southeast zone, a feat no other zone has achieved.
The Zonal Head of the Commission, Adamu Danmusa, disclosed this in an interview with newsmen during the African Anti-Corruption Road Walk on Wednesday in Enugu.
He said that many institutions in Enugu State were under investigation for alleged corruption allegations.
“This year alone, the zone has secured no fewer than 13 convictions. No zone in the country has surpassed that within the period,” he said.
Danmusa said that the Commission was dedicated to its duty of ensuring that corruption was significantly reduced if not eliminated in the country.
He, however, said that the EFCC cannot do it without adequate collaboration with members of the public and other relevant institutions.
“The fight against corruption is for everybody and not only the President and the EFCC. We should be committed to it.
“There is corruption everywhere; in our homes, schools, markets and political life. We have to fight it together for the future of our children,” Danmusa said.
