EFCC to arrest more Jonathan’s men before May 2019 –Magu

Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has promised to arrest more ex-officials of the former administration under President Goodluck Jonathan before May 29, reports ITRealms.

He said that EFCC has investigating of high-profile evidence before it and therefore collating necessary supporting proof.

Speaking to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Hausa service in London at the weekend, Mr. Magu said “Anybody that is involved in this scandal, we will invite him. It is only that we have to first establish our evidence.Anybody who is guilty, I swear, we will summon him wherever he is.”
The EFCC chairman also explained that“Anybody that we invited, we must have finished with our background study on him.We spend not just days for the background work but months until we establish the case before we issue invitation. That is why none of the people we invited has come out clean.Whoever stole public funds and we establish our evidence, I’m telling you we will invite him, without cover. That is how the work is. We compile dossiers of proofs and facts before we invite.”

On amount recovered by the EFCC under him, Magurefused to disclose, insisting that “Because of what is going on, I can’t tell you the exact amount we have recovered so far. But we are still collecting the monies.I can’t tell you for now, but what we have recovered within this period alone, was never recorded since the establishment of the EFCC in 2003,” he said.

He maintained that what EFCC has recovered is way beyond that figure, insisting that he will not let the cat out of the bag yet.
“I don’t want to let it out now. On 29th May, we will disclose every detail and Nigerians will know what we have done”, he said.
