Lack of cooperation from other agencies making arrest of Maina difficult- Magu

Ebun Francis || The chairman of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu on Monday said that lack of cooperation from other sister security agencies is making the arrest of the fugitive former chairman of the Presidential Tax Force on Pension Reforms, Ibrahim Maina, difficult.

Magu who made the disclosure when he appeared on Channels Television programme, Sunrise, described the return and reinstatement of Maina as ”devastating”, promising that the agency will deal with those involved in the perfidy.

The EFCC boss “We would go after everybody who is involved. I am telling you, we will not spare anybody.”

“He has people who are protecting him and that has made it difficult for us to get him arrested. You can imagine, he was promoted. It is devastating, it is beyond my understanding.

“I assure you, we will get him sooner or later. The national assembly is supporting us. We are collaborating and we are also giving them support. We have no problem with national assembly.”

The EFCC chairman complained that his agency is not getting enough support and cooperation from other security agencies and

“There are other people who are supporting the fight against corruption. Millions of Nigerians,” he said.

“There are some support, synergy, cooperation from time to time but it is not satisfactory because every security agency has some responsibilities in the fight against corruption.

“I want us to be fully committed in the fight against corruption because the greatest enemy of Nigeria today is corruption and the corrupt people are now celebrating.
