EFCC recovers N57m from suspected fraudsters
« on: October 22, 2016, 10:48:06 AM »


The Ibadan zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has recovered the sum of N57, 316,607.15 from suspected fraudsters between February and September, 2016.

The Head of the zonal office, Mr Akaninyene Ezima,‎ who was flanked by the Deputy Head Kazeem Oseni, Head Public Relations Ayo Oyewole and the Commission’s Head of Administration, Oyekemi Kayode-Afe, diclosed this while presenting the score card of the commission to journalists in the last nine months of its operations in the zone.
According to Ezima, “between F‎ebruary and September, we received over 200 petitions out of which 123 are under investigations.

“Eighty suspects were arrested during the course of investigation. Out of these cases, eight are already before the courts at various stages of trial.

“For us, these figures indicate a steady progression ‎in our activities and a commitment to the Commission’s mandate.

“For the record, the Ibadan Zone is not limited to official corruption cases. We are at advanced stages in the investigation of some advance fee fraud cases and other forms of infractions.

“Going forward, we encourage th‎at the performance so far would be better as we forge ahead and diligently pursue our cases in court to ensure that justice is served accordingly.

“This optimism is informed by the new practice directive by the Chief Justice of Nigeria on the expeditious handling of corrupton cases in court.

“We strongly hope that before the end of the year, the Ibadan Zonal Office will have a number of convictions in her kitty.”

Ezima said the biggest challenge of t‎he commission is paucity of information from th public, stressing that the commission cannot succeed without information from the public.

He appealed to the public to provide adequate information to the anti-graft body, promising to treat such information with the greatest confidentiality and respect it deserves.
