Armsgate:- We Will Recover All Stolen Public Funds – EFCC Boss, Magu - NEWS

The EFCC seems defiant with its stand against corruption in Nigeria as the acting Chairman has boasted about getting to the bottom of the arms deal scam saga.

Acting Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has said that the Commission will leave no stone unturned in the effort to recover public funds that have been stolen in the guise of arms procurement in Nigeria.

Magu, who stated that the Commission was on top of the ongoing investigation, added that all the culprits in the arms procurement scandal would be brought to justice.

Speaking at the commemoration of the International Anti-corruption Day which has as theme, ‘‘Break the Corruption Chain’’ on Wednesday, December 9 at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja, he said: ‘‘Corruption is like a chain whose effect impacts various aspects of the society, undermines democracy and the rule of law, distorts markets, erodes quality of life, leads to human rights violations and fans the embers of terrorism and other threats to human security.’’
