We have recovered over N1bn from South South alone – EFCC | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

Rivers State Zonal head of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ishaq Saliu claimed that over N1 billion was recovered from looters of public funds between January and September 2016, with 24 convictions.

Saliu said this while addressing Niger Delta youths who yesterday staged a protest at the commission's office over the current investigations into the $15 million found in four company accounts linked to former first lady, Patience Jonathan.

The youths alleged the investigation was selective.

"There is nothing selective in the cases of EFCC. We are professionals to the core. Once an allegation is made, before somebody is even invited, the invitation is the last leg of our cases. Bank documents and things we need to inquire would have been gotten. Port Harcourt Zonal office alone, this year, has 24 convictions and recovered over a billion naira” he said

  1. EFCC, how much have you recovered from the north? The northern man will always say what the south did wrong but will never say what the north did, is doing and will continue to do wrong. I am yet to hear what the EFCC has recovered from the north considering the fact that most top government workers and thieves are from the north. My apologies to others that don't steal public funds.

  2. And where is the money??? Because the last time i checked Nigerian government is intending to sell national assets to cushion the current recession while we have thise recovered money still with the FG. Lie Lying for Lies

  3. One billion naira? That's no money! Nigeria needs trillions of naira to survive the present economic problems.
