Magu Wants EFCC To Keep Recovered Loots by Osmondinho(m): 6:01am On Oct 19, 2016
Abuja – The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has urged a review of Nigerian laws to enable anti-graft agencies in the country retain a percentage of the loot recovered to fund their operations.

The Acting Chairman of the commission, Mr Ibrahim Magu, made the request at the national anti-corruption conference organised by the Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption (PACAC) and the National Assembly in Abuja.

The conference which began Tuesday will end Wednesday.

Magu said the review will be in line with international best practices.

“In some jurisdictions like the UK, proceeds of crime are further used to strengthen the agency,” he said.
“In EFCC, we have been struggling for years to build our headquarters and when I think of the billions of naira we recover, I can see what would have happened if we are allowed to apply a percentage of this recovery into our operations.”

The EFCC boss also advocated the amendment of the country’s anti-graft laws to place the burden of proof on the accused in corruption cases.

“One the issues that concerns us in the EFCC is that of non-conviction based recovery.

“It is of great concern to us that the burden is on us to prove in court that this is a proceed of crime.
“But in other climes the accused has to prove that the property he has, actually represents the fruit of his labour.
“There is the need for the Act to make a provision for an application of the proceeds of crime into recapitalising the anti graft agencies.”

Magu was represented at the event by Mr David Tukura, the Deputy Director of Planning, Policy and Statistics of the commission.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who opened the conference, called for more support from Nigerians for the Buhari administration’s efforts at recovering stolen funds from looters of the nation’s treasury.

Osinbajo lamented the state of corruption in Nigeria.
He said the country stands the risk of remaining underdeveloped if nothing is done to stem the tide of corruption.

The President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, said the anti-corruption war being waged by the government should not be a tool for political witch-hunt.

“In order to succeed this time, we cannot afford to make the fight against corruption a simple matter. We cannot afford to make it a chase in the dark. It must be rooted in effective strategy and demonstrative plan.”

Saraki emphasised the need for the anti-corruption campaign to be a collective responsibility of Nigerians to rid the country of impunity and hardship.

The theme of the conference is : “The Role of the Legislature in the Fight against Corruption in Nigeria”.

Because their is no recovered loot. Everything is just a media show.

If you have any facts show the Nigerian public and return the money to the Nigerian people through their elected representatives in the National Assembly.

Return the phantom money to the CBN, you are not a government safe.

Zombie government

One reason to convince you of our daft leadership is the fact we banned importation of rice for humans but want to import grasses for cows.

I concur..


But it should be handed to them via the proper channels.. Menaing they recover the loot, account for their recovery to the Finance Ministry or whoever is in charge and then it is given to them from the top.

Same for the Police. They should be allowed to keep a percentage of monies the recover from Tickets, fines and the likes..
