- Ibrahim Magu has said the looters of Nigeria's treasury are sponsoring Biafra agitation and restructuring
- Magu said Nigerians must be determined to fight corruption
- He also said there is no going back in the current fight against corruption in Nigeria
The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission Ibrahim Magu has alleged that looters of Nigeria's treasury are responsible for the growing agitation for Biafra and the restructuring of Nigeria.
Magu while speaking at a stakeholder's meeting in Kano on Friday, July 7, said the looters who have stolen Nigeria's money over the years are sponsoring all the growing agitation in the country.
He said Nigeria must continue to move forward with Nigerians determined to fight corruption at all levels.
The EFCC czar said corruption is a threat to Nigeria's unity and despite effort by the high and might, all hands must be on deck to fight it.
“Agitations of restructuring the nation, Biafra and even Boko Haram are being financed by looters of the country," Magu said.
“The looters are ready to continue sponsoring all these violence against the state just to create confusion to distract attention against them. But that will not succeed.

“I can assure you that the President and the Vice President are committed to the fight against corruption and we have this political will in our leaders. We would not be deterred; we will continue fighting the war against corruption in this country.
“Again, those looting our wealth in this country are not more than 10,000 people and I don’t think there is any way the will of these people will prevail upon over the 150 million people of Nigeria,” he said.
