The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu has called for increased collaboration of other law-enforcement agencies with the EFCC in the fight against corrupt practices.

According to him , “The fight against economic and financial crimes requires collaboration, and the Commission alone cannot eradicate these crimes without the help of the Navy. Therefore, the need for a sustained synergy cannot be overemphasized”.
