Meanwhile, the EFCC acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu, has lamented that despite the efforts of the commission, the patrons of corruption are plotting how to continue the looting.
His words: “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."
