The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, on Saturday, 2th, January 25, shed light on why some petitions sent to the anti-graft agency are returned.
According to Ibrahim Magu, every petition received by the commission passes through the Screening Committee who considers the content and determine whether it falls within the scope of its constitutional mandate.
The EFCC chairman made the explanation while featuring on “Talk Radio”, a morning programme of the Ibadan-based Inspiration 100.5 FM.
Magu said they launch into action if its something they should handle.
He says, “Before we commence investigations on any petition, we give them to the Screening Committee for review. The committee will look at the content and advise accordingly on what to do.”
“If it is something we should handle, we launch into action. If not, we guide the petitioner on the appropriate place to take it to.”
