by Ajadi Daniel

The economic and financial crimes commission (EFCC) has in the last ten months recovered over N54 billion from fraudsters and corrupt politicians in its northwestern zone which is made up of Kano, Sokoto, Jigawa, Kastina, Kebbi, Zamfara and Kaduna states.

The commission said it also recovered the sum of $622,000 and properties which include eight houses, nine plots of land, three trucks and a car from January to date.

Mr Nnaghe Itam, the zonal head of operations made this disclosure while briefing newsmen in Kano on Tuesday. He said the commission has 214 cases out of which they have been able to secure 23 convictions while 24 other cases are pending in courts. Mr. Nnaghe also stated that “our investigations into the cyclical, bridging, and retail schemes yielded a refund of N54.3 billion to government by credit marketers who collected products, sold them but refused to remit the monies”, he also disclosed that EFCC has recovered millions for the Federal Inland Revenue Service.

According to him, the EFCC media department is liaising with states under the zone using NYSC outreach programmes to enlighten and foster the needed anti corruption culture in order to build integrity in the citizenry.
