By GRACE TOYIN BELLO

Ibrahim Magu, Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Thursday, urged the Federal Government to establish a peculiar prison for corrupt Nigerians in the deadly Boko Haram-infested Sambisa forest.

 Magu, made the call while commissioning the Kaduna zonal office and stakeholders engagement session of the Commission in Kaduna.

The EFCC Acting Chairman also argued that for the prison to be realized, the judiciary arm of government should cooperate with the anti-graft agency in fighting corruption people in Nigeria.

National Daily gathered that Magu was of the view that illegal loots were likely to be abandoned by corrupt persons at the nation’s airport and places in near future as it happened at Kaduna airport few months ago.

He said: “We want to call for establishment of prison in Sambisa forest in order to keep away corrupt people from our midst.

“In this case, the judiciary has direct influence to help in the fight against corruption.”

“But concerted efforts are being made by some big Nigerians to neutralise the fight against corruption. We must change the narrative by fighting back those that do not want the fight to succeed.

“I remain committed to the fight against corruption, and I commend the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, for encouraging EFCC to establish a zonal office in Kaduna.

“We must, therefore, join hands together to kill corruption before corruption will kill us,” Magu declared.
