EFCC has recorded 113 convictions in 6 months – Magu

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) sais it has gotten 113 convictions between January and June 2017.

Chairman of INEC, Ibrahim Magu said this on Friday while talking to stakeholders at an interactive meeting, according to a statement by the commission’s spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren.

Magu said despite obstacles faced in ensuring justice, the corrupt in the society will not be spared.

“We will not fail to bring to book those who have corruptly stolen our commonwealth and thereafter organise to destabilise the anti-corruption initiatives.

“I will not relent, I will fight for the interest of our citizens and our children’s future,” he said.

Magu reiterated his position that corruption is at the root of recent separatist agitations in parts of the country.

Malachy Ugwumadu, President of the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights (CDHR), described the anti-corruption fight as a class struggle and war that must be won by the people.

“This is a class struggle between the political elites and those of us fighting to rescue the soul of our society.

“The battle may be lost if we don’t reorganise and focus on the people who seem confused due to manipulation by the corrupt few,” Ugwumadu reportedly said.

Dr Joe Odumakin of Women Arise, called for commitment and synergy among civil society groups.

“This is not a day to agonise but to organise and put our strategies in focus. Enough of the diversionary tactics employed by those who hate the commission.

“We must put our house in order, and create more awareness in the communities on the dangers of corruption and how we can mobilise the common people for support,” he said.
