The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says all looted funds recovered by it are paid into the consolidated revenue account of the Federal Government.

The commission made this known on its Twitter handle, @officialefcc in response to a question from one of its followers, @asanto11a.


In recent times, a section of the public, especially critics of the Buhari-led anti-corruption campaign, has been expressing doubts about claims of recovered loots and have been asking  questions about where recovered loots by the commission are kept.

The EFCC also said there is no hiding place for looters, including those who travel abroad to evade the arm of the law.

Submitting petitions anonymously

The commission advised victims and members of the general public to forward their petitions by emailing info@efccnigeria.org or by dropping hard copies of petitions at the EFCC office nearest to them.

The anti-graft agency also tweeted that petitions can be submitted anonymously.

Nigerians show appreciation

Some twitter users, Samuel Kanu, Banky and others who are not used to seeing a Nigerian government agency interact with citizen’s on social media commended the anti-graft agency for its new initiative of promptly responding to inquiries on social media.
