Ibrahim Magu, the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reiterated his commitment to the fight against corruption in Nigeria.
Speaking during a march against corruption in Abuja on Tuesday, May 23, 2017, Magu said a ‘deadly cabal’ is bent on taking Nigeria back to the dark days of corruption.
The EFCC czar promised to fight corruption with the last drop of his blood.
“If we don’t kill corruption, corruption will kill Nigeria. But we will not allow that because we will fight it with the last drop of our blood,” Magu said.
“More gains have been recorded in the last in the last two years. These gains are attested to by massive recovery of stolen assets, and conviction of some high profile corruption suspects.
“The reign of impunity in the conduct of public affairs has been checked to a considerable extent by taking on the high and mighty in all sectors.
“This ordinarily should provide impetus for greater exploits. Sadly, that is not the case. A band of corrupt elites threatened by momentum of the anti-graft war wants to derail the process.
“They are deadly, and without remorse, they plot and scheme to defeat the anti-corruption and take the country back to the dark days when corruption and impunity reigns supreme.
