EFCC | Check out the commission’s reports within the last six months. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has secured 340 convictions for various offences and recovered billions of dollars stolen funds within the last six months. EFCC Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, disclosed this at the project launch on law enforcement and public engagement in Nigeria organised in Abuja, yesterday, by the CLEEN Foundation, in collaboration with the International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs Office of US Embassy.
Magu, who was represented by the commission’s Secretary, Mr Emmanuel Adegboyega, did not, however, mention the volume of money recovered during the period. He refuted claims that the commission had recorded only a few number of convictions in its operations, stressing that it recorded more convictions than any other anti-graft or sisters agencies in the country. He also noted that the successes recorded depended on the court, especially as the commission had no control over the activities of the court. He called for synergy among anti-graft agencies, adding that “if there is no synergy among the anti-graft agencies, little or no success can be achieved.”
