The Fight Against Corruption Has Just Started – EFCC Boss, Magu

The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr Ibrahim Magu has said that the fight against corruption has just started.

The EFCC boss stated this on Tuesday, during an interview with journalists after an assessment visit to the Ilorin zonal head of the agency.

He stated that the agency will request the extradition of persons alleged to have looted public funds, adding that the fight against corruption has been renewed this year and anyone found guilty will be prosecuted.

“We will arraign everybody investigated, when it is concluded, will be prosecuted.

“This is just the beginning, we are going to request more extradition; we will bring back all the looters who are hiding outside the country.

“The fight against corruption has just started, it is renewed this year,” he added.

Mr Magu debunked the assertion that the establishment of the Agency in Kwara state is to go after selected persons.

“It is not fair, Kwara is one of the oldest states in the Federation, and it deserves a Headquarter of the EFCC.

“Not because of an individual, at all, far from it.”
