“We’ve arraigned two ex-governors” – EFCC sends warning to politicians

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has sent a note of warning to “mega thieves” in the country.

EFCC chairman, Ola Olukoyede, have the warning on Sunday at an Anti-Corruption Concert organised to create awareness and public involvement in the fight against internet crimes.

Olukoyede said that the anti-graft agency under his leadership will “continue to be broad-based, holistic and unsparing of anyone linked with any form of economic and financial crimes.”

The chairman said, “We will not spare anyone. We will not spare the mega thieves. As we are doing the mega, we will also do those at the lower end. In the last two months, we have arraigned two former governors.

“So, it is not true that we are only focused on internet fraudsters. Of course, internet fraud is bad enough, but our focus is on every form of economic and financial crimes,” he declared.

Olukoyede also warned youths against indulgence in internet-related offences, pointing out that the consequences of being convicted for such crimes are grave.

“Youths need to know that being ex-convicts has career limitations. Ex-convicts can’t run for public offices, and the stigma alone is even terrible. So, I urge you to avoid internet crimes by all means. Your future is more important than any immediate gains from such crimes
