Ibrahim Magu: EFCC will extradite high profiled looters soon

Not less than 18 high profiled looters in different parts of the world will be extradited soon, Acting Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Chairman Ibrahim Magu, stated on Tuesday.

He told reporters in Ilorin, capital of Kwara: “The request of President Muhammadu Buhari in London for the extradition of alleged looters is just the beginning of the fight against corruption in Nigeria. We are going to extradite more Nigerians to come and face trial in Nigeria.

“We will bring back all the looters who are hiding outside this country. The fight against corruption has just started I am telling you. It will be renewed this year. It is going to be vigorous.”

Magu described the insinuation that the EFCC is established Kwara purposely to deal with former Senator Bukola Saraki as unfair.

“Kwara is one of the oldest states in the country. It deserves the headquarters of the EFCC. There was a time there were 12 states in Nigeria and Ilorin was a state capital of Kwara.

“You should be protesting why EFCC was not brought here earlier. Not because of an individual, far from that,” he added.

Speaking on his non confirmation as the substantive EFCC chair, Magu said: “I feel great. I am not worried. It is Gods that appoints and does otherwise. If God says you are holding a position, whether you are confirmed or unconfirmed when it is your time to leave you will leave. I believe very much in that.”
