National Coordinator and Advocate for People’s Justice, Giwa Victor, has maintained that corruption is not necessarily a crime against humanity.
Featuring on Channel’s Television programme, he explained that for corruption to be described as a crime against humanity, there must be a specific identified crime.
Giwa also berated the Department of State Services, DSS, over the recent raid of some judges’ homes across the country as part of its ongoing corrupt investigation.
He said, “In some quarters, because of the effect on the entire system of certain nations, some people tend to elevate corruption as a crime against humanity.”
Stating that the arrest of the judge’s was a shock to him, he stressed that the “the manner in which it was done, shows that they contemplated a strong resistance.”
Recall that few days ago, the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, had described corruption as a crime against humanity.
