The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, on Thursday said there is no one who would “come out clean” after honouring
the invitation of the anti-graft agency.
Speaking on Question Time, a programme on Channels Television, Magu said the commission carries out thorough findings before inviting suspects.
He denied the allegation that the EFCC had turned into a tool for political witch-hunt, saying the commission is only after “thieves.”
“We don’t chase innocent people; we investigate people before we arrest them. We follow the money, we trace when you received the money, and we also investigate
how you utilised the money.
“That’s why anybody who is invited here will not come out clean, because we do our homework before we invite you. We may investigate for a year or six
months and the person would not know,” he said.
