In an earlier address, the Magu vowed never to give up in making sure that corruption was completely eradicated in Nigeria stressing that, “the days of impunity are gone”.

“The reign of impunity in the conduct of public affairs has been checked to a considerable extent. By taking on the high and mighty in all sectors, the EFCC has proven that there are no sacred cows in the fight against corruption”, he said.

The anti-graft czar said that some elite in the society, whom he described as “deadly and without remorse”, are determined to slow the process employed by the agency in fighting corruption and vowed never succumb to their antics.

According to him, the government’s focus on anti-corruption has galvanized the anti-corruption establishment and delivered hope that corruption can indeed be fought with the right political will.
