The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, has said the anti-graft agency was investigating serving and former state governors for graft.
According to him, suspects, who connived with the governors, were being invited for questioning.
Magu, however, did not disclose the identities of those under probe, noting that this would jeopardise the investigations.
Speaking at a press conference to mark the 2020 Democracy Day in Abuja, Magu said the agency had recovered assets in excess of N980 billion in the last five years.
He said, “We are on course in all the cases we are prosecuting, our scorecard in the area of conviction is 2,240 in the last five years and we covered assets in excess of N980billion, with quite a large array of non-monetary assets. We are also investigating serving and former governors and questioning those conniving with them.” (The PUNCH)
