The Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has vowed to expose and prosecute all the brains behind the contract whose alleged breach led to the $9.6billion British court judgment against Nigeria.
Acting Chairman of the commission, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, said in Kaduna that the EFCC had gone far in its investigation of the matter and will soon expose those behind the contract and the court judgement irrespective of whether they are serving in the present government or had served in the past administrations.
“They have adopted another measure… they want to rob this country. Otherwise, why should someone go from behind and connive with government officials and demand a judgement of $9.6 billion?” Magu said during an anti-corruption road walk organised by the Kaduna Zonal office of the EFCC on Friday.

“Do you know how much that is? If we want to build a general hospital in every village in Nigeria, that money is enough. A very serious investigation is going on and very soon we will expose them all,” he said.
Others who joined the walk included officers of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, Federal Road Safety Corps, National Drug Law Enforcement Agency and National Youth Service Corps, as part of efforts to foster inter-agency collaboration in the anti-corruption fight.
