Magu Sends Strong Message To Oil Thieves In Niger Delta
Nigeria’s main anti-graft agency, the EFCC has sent a strong message to oil thieves in the Niger Delta region of the country.
Speaking on the renewed fight against corruption in the country, the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ibrahim Magu said that oil thieves in the Niger Delta will find it tough to sabotage Nigeria’s economy through their nefarious acts.
The EFCC Chairman who was on a working visit to Port Harcourt, also paid an inspection visit to the 6th Division, Nigerian Army in Rivers State where vehicles forfeited to the Federal Government by illegal oil dealers are being parked. Magu explained that all the forfeited vehicles belong to the Federal Government and the processes for their auction are still ongoing.
“All the vehicles forfeited belong to the government. The processes are ongoing. We are following processes stated in the Procurement Act. We are not hiding anything. All the vehicles auctioned are still there. The auction processes continue until payments and reconciliation are made,” he said.
