EFCC recovers over 1bn naira in S-South

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commissions, EFCC, said it has recovered over 1 billion naira within seven months in the South-South States.
The commission disclosed this in Port Harcourt, weekend, during a protest by the Coalition of Civil Rights Organisations, Concern Youths and the Ijaw Nation Worldwide on the probe of the former first lady, Mrs. Patience Jonathan.
Addressing the protesters, the South-south Zonal Head of EFCC, Mr. Ishaq Salihu noted that the amount it recovered falls in two categories, explaining that part of the money was from politicians, whereas, the other was from cases reported to the commission.
Salihu averred that the commission recovered over 500 million naira from top politicians in the region within the stipulated months.
The EFCC boss said: “Between January 2nd and 2nd of September alone, the EFCC South-South office has recovered 1 billion, thirty million, and five hundred and fifty five thousand naira sixty-two kobo (1,030,555,000, 62). What I said can be verified, there are records on that.
