The result of investigations carried out by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on the involvement of Nigerians in documents leaked by the Panamanian law firm, Mossack Fonseca, otherwise known as the Panama Papers, will soon be made public, the Acting EFCC Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, has said.
Magu spoke at the closing session of a workshop organized by the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) in collaboration with the Association of professional Bodies of Nigeria (APBN) at the weekend in Abuja.
Some prominent Nigerians were named in the Panama leaks, including former governors.
He said it sometimes takes between six and nine months after gathering intelligence before EFCC invites suspects.
“We do our work and we do not discriminate. There are no sacred cows. I work and finish my work as if there is no tomorrow because corruption is fighting back,” he said.
He said certain professionals frustrated the EFCC in the fight against corruption, adding that there are professionals who celebrate corruption.
He also said the EFCC would soon beam its search light on corruption in hospitals.
