"We hope that in the future, we will be able to reinforce our cooperation. I want to seize this opportunity to say that anybody who commits any economic crime in France and comes to Nigeria or vice-versa will be prosecuted," Bonnichon's representative said.
EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Lamorde, expressed delight on the growing collaboration between the agency and the French Government.
"If anyone commits any economic or financial crime in this country and runs to France and thinks France will give him protection from the law, we will ensure they are brought to book. In the same vein, if someone commits a crime in France and comes to Nigeria, we are always here to liaise with the French authorities and ensure that such a person is brought to book by way of investigation, prosecution or even extradition to France," he added.
