According to the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, the agency has recovered more than $3.1 billion from corrupt persons.

Magu made the disclosure during a visit to the London office of the BBC Hausa service over the weekend.

“Because of what is going on, I can't tell you the exact amount we have recovered so far. But we are still collecting the monies,” he said according to Daily Trust.

“I can't tell you for now, but what we have recovered within this period alone, was never recorded since the establishment of the EFCC in 2003.

“Actually, what we recovered is way beyond that figure,” Magu said when he was asked to clarify reports that the EFCC had recovered $3.1bn so far.

“I don't want to let it out now. On 29 May, we will disclose every detail and Nigerians will know what we have done,” Magu added.

The EFCC Chairman also said that the agency will invite former president, Goodluck Jonathan when it gathers evidence linking him to corrupt practices.
