Dark forces are in EFCC says Magu

22 August 2016, 21:44

Abuja - The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has claimed that some dark forces have been busy stealing the supremacies given to the  agency fight crimes in Nigeria, Herald reports.

Magu disclosed this while presenting a paper titled “This Is Our Chance’’ at the Symposium organized by members of the National Association of Democratic Lawyers, NADL, in Lagos.

He said: “When these dark forces gather (as they have), our expectation is that bodies such as the National Association of Democratic Lawyers would rise up, without any further prompting and come to our rescue

“The tug-and-pull for the soul of the EFCC aptly mirrors that for the control of the destiny of our dear nation.”

Although he did not give information about the so called “dark forces”, he promised Nigerians that the EFCC will tackle corruption not withstanding.

Meanwhile the Nigerian Bar Association has warned President Muhammadu Buhari that the Federal Government's war on corruption should be in line with the law according to News24.

NBA President, Augustine Alegeh said Sunday night that FG could not fight corruption by using backhanded tactics as would mean using graft to fight graft.
