EFCC has Recovered Over N980billion Assets in the Last Five Years – Magu

The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ibrahim Magu, has said the anti-corruption agency under his watch have recovered assets in excess of N980billion in the last five years, saying the EFCC is currently interrogating some serving and former state governors for financial crimes.

Magu explained further that suspects, who connived with the governors, were being invited for questioning.

The EFCC Chairman, however, did not disclose the identities of those under probe, noting that this would jeopardise the investigations.

Speaking at a press conference to mark the 2020 Democracy Day in Abuja, Magu said the agency had recovered assets in excess of N980 billion in the last five years.

He said, “We are on course in all the cases we are prosecuting, our scorecard in the area of conviction is 2,240 in the last five years and we covered assets in excess of N980billion, with quite a large array of non-monetary assets. We are also investigating serving and former governors and questioning those conniving with them.”
