The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mohammed Umar Abba, has said that the Commission secured 865 convictions from a total of 1,305 cases it filed in courts in 2020.
He said that a total of 7,340 cases were under investigation out of the 10,152 petitions received by the Commission.
The EFCC acting Chair added that the Commission also recorded humongous cash recoveries and seizure of a significant number of assets from persons indicted of corruption, following due legal process.
Abba, who made the disclosure in his end-of-year message, also thanked the staff of the Commission for their dedication, hard work and sacrifices in the discharge of their duties, which contributed to the feat recorded in 2020.
Describing the year under review as “unique for obvious reasons”, Abba further revealed that the Commission’s projections anchored on a strategic vision were greatly slowed down by the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The lockdown enforced as part of measures to stem the spread of the deadly virus precipitated a scale down of our operations.
“For more than five months, activities were at the lowest ebb in our 17-year history as an institution.
“Also, a reform process that witnessed a change in the leadership of the Commission naturally created anxiety among critical stakeholders.”
