Our Investigators Taking Bribe Says EFCC Chairman

The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr Ola Olukoyede, says some of the investigators are in the habit of demanding bribes from crime suspects, thus eroding the integrity of the agency.

While delivering his New Year address at the Headquarters in Abuja, Mr. Olukoyede sounded a note of warning to the anti-graft agency’s investigators that they would be dealt with if they failed to retrace their steps with the policy’s guidelines, which are erected on responsibility, accountability, and transparency.

President Bola Tinubu appointed Olukoyede as the EFCC helmsman in October 2023, following the suspension of Abdulrasheed Bawa in July, over suspected infractions while in office.

Earlier in his address, the anti-graft agency’s boss urged the staff to be up and doing, as he added that the development of the country depends on the competence of the Commission in dealing with corruption.
