I am Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa the chairman of the ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL CRIMES COMMISSION (EFCC) in alliance with Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) with head office here in Nigeria. We have been working towards the eradication of fraudsters and scam Artists in the Western part of Africa With the help of United States Government and the United Nations.
We have been able to track down so many of this scam in various parts of West Africa such as (REPUBLIC OF BENIN, TOGO, GHANA, CAMEROON, NIGERIA, MALI AND SENEGAL) and they are all in our custody here in Lagos Nigeria.
The Anti-corruption war has taken a new turn as the past chairman of this commission Mr. Ibrahim Magu a retired police officer, was suspended as EFCC chairman last year 2020 due to corruption charges five years after he took over as head of the anti-graft agency on 9 November 2015, he is under investigation for fraud including the diversion of recovered funds, assets and alleged diversion of N1 trillion, he is currently being investigated for more evidence, you can also follow the link for more informations.
The EFCC as an agency that is founded on transparency is not afraid of any âprobeâ or request for information regarding its activities by individuals, groups or organs of government; so far as such requests followed due process of law. The EFCC under Magu did not need the prompting of anyone, when it commissioned a reputable international audit firm, KPMG to carry out comprehensive audit of exhibits and forfeited assets of the Commission from 2003 of its inception to date.
We also arrested some who claim to be barristers, bank officials, government officials, lottery agents who with-held your funds, has money for transfer or want you to be the next of kin of such funds which does not exist.
We have been able to recover so much money from this hoodlums, corrupt government officials and scam artists, the New minister of Finance Federal Republic of Nigeria Mrs. Zainab Shamsuna Ahmed under president Muhammadu Buhari, and the CBN issued a statement on Feburary 20th 2016 to the effect that the CBN is against the fleecing of customers under any guise and with the mandate of the Apex Bank, issued a deposit refund of N6.2 Billion excess charges on cost of transaction for 2015 alone. This refund, the CBN said arose from more than 6,000 complaints of unauthorised bank charges brought to its notice. So the United Nations Anti-crime commission and the United States Government have ordered the money recovered to be shared among 100 Lucky beneficiaries whose information was obtained from the impostors.
