The Economic Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) of Nigeria Chieftain Mr. Ibrahim Magu is now turning the commission’s search light to Ghana. For only one reason- looters of Nigeria's treasury.

He mentioned this recently, when a delegation of the Chartered Institute of Public Resource Management and Politics (CIPRMP) visited the Commission’s headquarters. Where he was honoured with an award, marking his work of selfless service and professionalism in fighting corruption in the country.

The EFCC boss said that, the Commission will be partnering with its counterpart in Ghana to recover the country's impending assets noting that corruption is a border-less crime.           

Also, the Commission is putting every resources for this task, it’s very clear that the anti-corruption Agency is ready to find and arrest looters who have ran to Ghana. Noting that, they have ruffled the untouchables but that will not stop them from doing their work function, no matter the discomfort.

Therefore, he encourage Nigerians to trust the agency by giving useful information regarding looters of the country’s treasury, and pledge to fight corruption and bring comfort to the nation.

Anti- corruption in Nigeria is not new but in the advent of His Excellency, President Buhari’s government, the anti -corruption agency seem to have been revamped to face the task of going after looters no matter the position of authority.

The Agency so far have sent to prison politicians and money launders, that were known to be untouchable. Even the current fight against yahoo boys(internet fraudsters), who have all this while, really show case the country in very bad light.

The fear of EFCC is beginning to affect these fraudsters, who had a field-day for a very long time. News have been heard across the nation, about internet fraudsters that have been prosecuted in various states and that means machineries have been set in motion to achieve these task.

Recently, the National Lottery Fund Trust (NLFT) showed gratitude to EFCC for their rapid response and intervention, in making Premier Lotto a.k.a Baba Ijabu and KC Gaming a.k.a Bet9ja to remit a total of one billion Naira to the Federal Government due to their negligence to remit 20% of their turnover through the National Lottery Trust Fund as mandated by law.

In another case, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki (SAN) a former Minister for Special Duties and Inter Government Affairs is charged with 16 count charges of fraud and misappropriation of Seven Hundred and Fourteen Million, Six Hundred and Seventy Thousand and Fourteen Naira, Eighty- seven Kobo (N714,670,14.87k). The money was meant for sensitization and enlightenment of Muslim youths on hate speech and religious intonation. His case was adjourned to September 2020 after court hearing.

 John Yusuf, a former Assistant Director in the Federal Civil Service was sentence to six years in prison and a fine of N22.9 Billion Naira for stealing Police Pensions.

One Bulama Abu Mohammed, the ward head of Bolori in Maiduguri Metropolitan Council was charged for obtaining money under false pretense and forgery to the tune of Two Million, Four Hundred Thousand Naira. The case was adjourned to 23 July 2020 for further hearing.

Economic and Financial Crime Commission boss have been known for getting things done, so far, ex-governors, internet fraudsters, and money launderers have gone to prison on various crimes. Now is time for Nigeria treasury looters in Ghana to be aware and come clean.

The Nigerian system now needs citizens who are patriotic and have legit jobs. I salute all the good hustle; your time is near to reap the benefits of your labour. If you are thinking of fulfilling needs and raising the standard of living of Nigerians through technology, agriculture, petroleum and turning point- ideas. You will one day be a billionaire.
