Ibrahim Magu, Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, says many Nigerian looters are hiding in neighbouring Ghana.
Speaking in Abuja on Friday, Magu said the commission was putting resources together to go after them and recover the country’s wealth stashed in that country.
The EFCC boss spoke when a delegation of the Chartered Institute of Public Resources Management and Politics visited the commission’s headquarters.
According to Magu, the EFCC is partnering with its counterpart in Ghana on the impending asset recovery operation. He said they are putting resources together to go to Ghana and recover stolen property back home.
He also appeals to Nigerians to trust the Commission with relevant information about corrupt practices in the country. Magu also urged Nigerians to disregard the falsehood in some selected news outlets about him and the commission, saying EFCC activities are transparent.
