EFCC talks tough, threatens to prosecute fuel subsidy crooks

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says all those indicted by the House of Representatives Ad hoc committee that probed the payments for fuel subsidy will be prosecuted.

The anti-graft body spoke in Abuja Friday via a press statement by Wilson Uwujaren, its Acting Head of Media and Publicity.

Mr. Uwujaren issued the statement to signal EFCC’s “receipt of the report of the House of Representatives Committee inquiry into the Federal Government Petroleum Products Subsidy programme, on Thursday, 10 May 2012”.

The Commission also commended the members of the House of Representatives for making the document available to his agency.

“EFCC will study the report and use the House findings supported by evidences, along with the Commission’s own painstaking criminal investigation, to build a watertight case that will stand the test of rigorous prosecution against those found wanting,” he added.

Mr. Uwujaren also said “that anyone, individual or group found to have engaged in criminal manipulation of the subsidy regime would be dealt with in accordance with the law”.
