Ibrahim Magu, the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has warned Nigerians to beware of fraudsters parading themselves as members of the commission, in a bid to collect bribe for the release of a detain person.

According to Magu, he didn’t give permission to anybody to ask for payments so as suspects, under investigation by the commission could be released.

This is contained in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), by EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren in Abuja on Thursday, May 19.

Ibrahim Magu, chairman of EFCC, has warned Nigerians to beware of fraudsters parading themselves as EFCC members in a bid to collect bribes.

Ibrahim Magu, chairman of EFCC, has warned Nigerians to beware of fraudsters parading themselves as EFCC members in a bid to collect bribes.

Magu’s statement read: “It has come to the knowledge of the EFCC that some persons have been using the name of its chairman fraudulently.

“These fraudsters also claimed that they had his permission to ask for payments to secure the release of suspects under investigation by the commission.

“The commission warns the public to be wary of the activities of these fraudulent individuals who have no relationship whatsoever with Magu and the EFCC.

“I have not mandated anybody to collect money on my behalf from any person or organisation; It is not in my character to do so, otherwise I will not be in this office.

“I am contented with what I am paid at the end of the month.

 “Anyone caught trying to tarnish my hard earned reputation and integrity must be prepared to face the music.

“I have accounts in three banks and, on no account should anybody make lodgment into any of my accounts without my knowledge.”

Magu also promised that the commission will discharge its duties, “guided solely by the fear of Almighty God, the overriding interest of our fatherland, Nigeria and the rule of law and not any pecuniary motive.”

The statement advised the public to report calls from suspected scammers and forward the callers’ numbers to the EFCC via: info@efccnigeria.org, theeagle@efccnigeria.org.

“The Commission could also be reached on: 09-9044571, 09-9044572, 09-9044573.’’

Meanwhile, a civil society organization, Joint Action Coalition of Civil Societies in Nigeria have called on Magu to investigate corrupt activities in the commission.

Speaking to journalists in Abuja, the national coordinator of the organization, Ikpa Isaac asked the EFCC chairman to come out clear and tell Nigerians his decision over corrupt allegations within the commission.
