Interpol Recommends EFCC As Africa’s Model In Anti-Corruption War


The Secretary-General of Interpol, Jurgen Stock, has recommended the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as a model for the African continent in the fight against corruption. He said this on Friday when he led a delegation of the Interpol to the EFCC Headquarters in Abuja.

Stock, who was received by the Acting EFCC Chairman Ibrahim Magu, was delighted at the efforts of the anti-graft agency and assured them of the global organisation’s support at the international level. He also commended the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari for its efforts in fighting corruption in Nigeria.

“I am delighted to be here and it’s mainly an opportunity to thank the Government and the EFCC for its cooperation,” he said in a statement signed by the Commission’s spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren. The Interpol boss further stressed the need to understand the global directions of organised crimes, noting that “the world is taking advantage of globalisation to commit crime and it’s a threat to all nations”.
