Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has promised to investigate Nigerians named in the Panama Papers Leak.

The commission's Director of Information, Osita Nwaja, gave the assurance on Tuesday while addressing protesters who stormed the Abuja head office of the anti-graft agency to demand the probe of all Nigerians accused of operating offshore accounts in notorious tax havens.
