The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, says the anti-graft war should not just be left in hands on the government and its agencies alone.

Magu also noted that there is no sacred cow in the war against corruption as his agency will unravel more corrupt cases and pursue the conviction of pending cases.

He stated this on Tuesday while featuring as a guest on Channels Television’s breakfast show, Sunrise Daily.

“I want to appeal to Nigerians to take ownership of the fight against corruption. This is the only way we can ensure victory. I assure you that victory shall come.

“This fight against corruption is about Nigeria. It should not be left to the anti-corruption agencies to pursue this issue,” he said.

Magu said that the case against a former Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayo Oke is still ongoing with more investigation ongoing on the verge of completion.

He stated further: “The investigation is on and will be concluded very soon. I am telling you there is no sacred cow.”

Similarly, Magu vowed not to relent in the case of an embattled former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, Abdulrasheed Maina, whose whereabouts still remain unknown.
