We’ll soon go after bank chiefs – Magu

Despite being vilified for selective graft war and facing possible removal by some influential presidential aides, Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, has said that he is ready to take the war to an end and give the nation a new lease of life.

Magu has ruled out the possibility of sparing any corrupt person in the fight, claiming that any Nigerian who commits an economic crime must pay for it.

“There is no sacred cow as far as this fight against corruption is concerned. We will go after anybody who has committed an offence.

We will collect the money back, so that it will go back to the treasury and be used for the original purposes.

“I don’t care whether you’re black or white or you come from party A or Party B; the moment it can be established that you have stolen from the public treasury, we will go after you.

Even right here [in EFCC], if we discover that you’re corrupt, we will kick you out. And we are already doing that. So we don’t go after innocent people. We are going after the thieves of state resources.”



  1. that is better because the MD of banks are the ones supporting this people to loot Nigeria money efcc should go after them

  2. No doubt the EFCC chairman will only go after banks that have the deposit of South-South and southeast depositors.
    President Buhari is the current president of northern Nigeria. The position of the president of Nigeria is still vacant.

  3. Start with pastor Erastus Akingbola who was convicted by a UK court of stealing a whooping 212b Naira and was ordered by the judge to refund the money to the FG

  4. Really by now the EFCC detention centre must be full!!!!! We have been having arrests and interviews of so-called looters,rouges and criminals ……… May I ask WHO SO FAR HAD BEEN CONVICTED OTHER THAN THE SOUTH SOUTH GUY WHO WAS IN NIMASA( I think OMATSEYE) ? DASUKI was arrested before him but he has not even been tried yet because of the shenanigans of the SANS in the Court process. Also non- publication of the looters et al is certainly not encouraging nor is it helping MR PRESIDENT IN FIGHTING THE WAR PN CORRUPTION.
