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

The Commission’s Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, made the disclosure today June 30 at an interactive meeting with stakeholders in Ikoyi, Lagos

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.

 The EFCC boss who observed that corruption was at the root of recent separatist agitations in parts of the country, urged for the joining of forces by all patriots to defeat these tendencies, adding that “we all have a stake in the peaceful co-existence of this nation.”

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.
