Spokesperson for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Osita Nwaja gave the looters the advice in the southern city of Enugu.

Nwaja reiterated the commission’s determination to bring corrupt office holders to book, saying the fight against corruption was fundamental to the country’s economic recovery.

“You are throwing impunity at our faces and that is not right. And that is what EFCC is saying. It is not right,” he added.

“We must bring them to justice. The accused persons themselves they have stolen billions and then they will go and hire all the lawyers they can and this is where we have the problems with some of these lawyers,” the spokesperson added.

“Recently we took some of them to court and then they appeared in support of themselves, over 100 Senior Advocates of Nigeria to defend one man. We are talking about 103 chambers in defense of one man,” Nwaja said.

The common man is at most times at the receiving end as they are always denied their basic needs and used for public demonstrations by the looters when arrested, the spokesperson added.

“We hear about all the crimes and all the criminals that are being investigated and prosecuted by the EFCC, but many of these people have direct link to the common man,” he said.

According to him, the common man does not see always because they try to blur the line of that linkage how that man who is stealing billions and trillions relates to his very callous regrettable situation in life. Enditem
