‘China refusing to help Nigeria with anti-corruption war,’ EFCC boss says

The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has said that China and Japan are refusing to cooperate with the agency’s war against corruption.

Magu made the disclosure on Tuesday, February 23, 2016, during a meeting with the Association of Chief Audit Executives of Banks in Nigeria, Punch reports.

“The cooperation from the Chinese end has been very minimal, it is not encouraging,” Magu said.

“There is more collaboration from the US, the United Kingdom and Switzerland essentially through INTERPOL or government to government,” he added.

Magu also urged the bankers to assist the agency in the fight against corruption.

The EFCC boss had earlier said that he is willing to pay the ultimate price to fight corruption.
