The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) said it recorded a total number of 126 convictions in 2014 on various corruption cases that are still pending in courts.
The agency said this through its Head, Media and Publicity, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, while addressing the media?on Tuesday?at the commission?s zonal office in Enugu. It described it as ?a feat in the light of the shenanigans that goes on in the Nigerian Judicial system.
?This, to all intent and purposes, is a healthy progression that should be applauded. Obviously, there is something that the EFCC under Lamorde has gotten right with investigation and prosecution of cases, and the commission is poised to sustain this momentum with a view to recording more convictions this year,? it said.
On its current efforts, he said the commission remained committed to see that cases pending in court were disposed of as quickly as possible.
According to him: ?God willing and if the strike by the judicial workers permits, the commission is expecting judgment in the N25 billion money laundering case instituted against Michael Igbinedion, younger brother of former Edo State governor, Lucky Igbinedion, and one Eboigbodin,?on Friday.
