EFCC reports successful conviction rate in 2016

27 May 2016, 18:14

Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has successfully sought the conviction of 140 culprits and recovered significant amounts said to be running to billions of Dollars since the beginning of the year.

Acting EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, disclosed the figures in Abuja during the launch of a new anti-corruption campaign.

“In just six months (sic) of this year, we have secured over 140 convictions, including some elusive ‘high profile’ criminals. We have recovered billions of dollars worth of stolen funds and blocked numerous avenues of money laundering,” he said.

In an address titled “We Must Win the War on Corruption and Impunity”
during the launch of EFCC’s Clean Hands Campaign at the Eagle Square, Magu added the commission had kept faith with its mandate and the expectations of Nigerians.

He said citizens were now more disposed to preemptively act against corruption and were willing to work with EFCC to fish out the criminals.

“However, in order to ensure that justice is fully served to the victim, the perpetrator and the society, it is important for us all to continue to hold everyone in the justice delivery chain accountable,” Magu said.
