Chairman of EFCC Ibrahim Magu says the agency will go after looters of funds meant for development of tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

Magu made this known when the management team of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) visited him in Abuja on Thursday.

According to reports, the EFCC boss was responding to a request by TETFund Executive Secretary Dr Abdullahi Baffa.

“The work at hand is enormous, and we are intensifying investigations in all the zones of the country,” he said.

Magu said it was during the investigation and prosecution of that case that more people were discovered who could be held liable.

He said the EFCC was willing and ready to partner TETFund’s management to block all corruption loopholes in the intervention agency.

However, the anti-graft body used the chance to encourage Baffa and his team to simplify its processes “to prevent further stealing.”

He also advised them to “sensitise members of the public and all relevant stakeholders concerning TETFund and its projects in their areas.”
