Ibrahim Magu, the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has stated that the fear of the agency has prevented governors from hosting flamboyant parties home and abroad.
Magu made the disclosure on Monday October 7th, when he paid a visit to the commission’s zonal office in Makurdi, Benue State.
“EFCC is all eyes and ears, wherever and whenever they organise such ostentatious parties, they will be fished out and prosecuted, be it within or outside the country.” he said
The chairman added that there will be no relenting in curbing the excesses of Nigerian politicians.
Magu added that his office is not being used for political vendetta.
”I don’t care who you are, where you come from. The political inclination is not an issue, so there is no question of identifying the chairman of a political party under investigation.
“If you are corrupt, I’ll go after you. You can see the two governors who were convicted were APC governors. There is no doubt about that. If you are corrupt, we usually conduct a very thorough preliminary investigation before we go after you, that’s why if you are invited by EFCC, there must be something. I think the fear factor is helping a lot”.
