The last is yet to be heard about the alleged stolen funds during the Goodluck Jonathan administration.

Reports reaching us say the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), are putting together a comprehensive list of looters, following a directive by the President.

Speaking to Journalists before giving the directive, President Buhari said “We are trying to get these documents; we are getting cooperation from the international community. We are going very soon to make sure that those who perpetrated this crime against Nigeria will be faced with facts and be taken to our courts.”

A source who is involved in the investigations said “Since then, the Chairman of the EFCC called for all the files of the various agencies; they are quite many and they were being sifted. The ongoing investigation is meant to give the Presidency an idea of what was stolen within the country and in some cases outside.”

While the EFCC is investigating and interrogating former political office holders, the ICPC is focused on civil servants who used stolen money to acquire choice properties in Abuja.

The anti-graft agencies certainly have their work cut out for them.
