The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) boss, Ibrahim Magu has revealed that those indicted in the $2.1b arms purchase scam investigations who returned money, might still be prosecuted.

According to Premium Times, Magu said “what matters first and foremost is for everyone involved in the arms deal scam to return the money he or she may have collected. That does not preclude such suspect from facing prosecution.”

He said politics in Nigeria has become too attractive, that is why politicians want to make wealth at all cost.

Adding that “This encourages a rat race of sorts. Also, the judiciary, which is the last resort, has allegedly been complicit, making civil servants who have been found guilty of corruption feel confident to poke the law in the face and go scot-free.”

Magi also said “There should be a national outrage by now

“There is something wrong with our values. Corruption has been celebrated over the years.”

The EFCC boss recently told a group of lawyers that he prefers to die fighting corruption.
