The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has disclosed that its Agency is fighting powerful forces in the country.
The EFCC Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, who made this known at the ‘3rd African Anti-Corruption Day’, organised by the Agency, on Thursday, July 11, in Abuja, pointed out that the Commission is determined to wage war against corruption to its logical conclusion.
Describing his job as a difficult task, Magu noted that the Commission is working round the clock to repatriate stolen funds and assets in safe havens abroad.
He said: ”The forces we are against are powerful, because they have a lot of stolen funds with them, and enough resources to frustrate investigation and prosecution.
“But we are determined to lead the fight against corruption. To get these funds and assets back, has become a problem.”
