The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday, called on Nigerians to continue to shun and expose corrupt practices in the country.
The EFCC also said it was fully committed to the President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war.
It added that “The EFCC is on course and its values remain sound and robust.”
A statement issued by its Spokesman, Dele Oyewale, also informed the public that normal activities and operations of the anti-graft agency were moving “smoothly and seamlessly” in all its Zonal Offices across the country and its Corporate Headquarters in Abuja.
Oyewale noted that some latest developments in the commission and the subsisting COVID-19 protocols have necessitated a scaling down of activities.
He however, disclosed that visitors on invitation by the commission are, in no way, affected by the restriction.
The clarifications by the commission may not be unconnected to the ongoing Presidential Panel probe of its now suspended acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu over allegations of corruption.
President Muhammadu Buhari had constituted the presidential panel to investigate Magu after the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, levelled weighty allegations of corruption and insubordination against the ex-EFCC chairman in a letter he wrote to the president.
Since the commencement of the investigative process, several media reports had attributed some allegations against Magu to the panel.
They include allegations that Magu allegedly failed to declare 322 properties recovered by the EFCC to the federal government as well the claim that the former EFCC boss had acquired a property worth N573 million in Dubai using funds from corruption proceeds.
