The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has gone tough with a final warning to top officials implicated in the stealing of huge sums of public funds to come out of their hiding and face its interrogating teams once and for all. The warning, Vanguard gathered, was borne out of the refusal by many of the key players of the Jonathan’s administration to honour several invitations extended to them by the commission to clear their names against huge sums of money traced to them and their cronies ahead of the last general elections.

Top on the list of those on the run, who are being expected by the EFCC to return and account for huge sums of money traced to them are two former ministers of finance and justice, a former northern governor and PDP chieftain and a one-time Comptroller General of Customs. Apart from the former customs officer, who is said to have made away with funds belonging to the agency, the rest have been fingered in the mismanagement of the $2.1billion cash meant for the procurement of arms to fight insurgents in the Northeast.

 Vanguard learnt that one of the former ministers is hiding away in Dubai while two others are believed to be holing away in the Scandinavian region under the guise of studying in order to evade prosecution for depriving the federal government of a huge sum of oil-related funds. One of the former ministers, who reportedly coordinated the sharing of a huge sum of N3.1 billion ahead of the last election, sneaked out of Nigeria at the weekend apparently to avoid being arrested and questioned for her role in the looting.

The EFCC, Vanguard learnt, was working round the clock to secure the arrest of the fleeing suspects through the involvement of Interpol and the American Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI.

Go to Dubai and Scandinavia and seek their extradition if its possible. How many corrupt Nigerian officials have ever returned on their OWN violation to Nigeria and owned up to stealing.

And how did someone SNEAK out of Nigeria. Were the airport and control border officials not told to be on the look out. Oh of course, I forgot, our even more corrupt airport and border control officials were there to receive their daily BRIBE - and to stamp his passport as "FREE to travel and so more escaped AGAIN!

EFCC will need more than a simple fishing line to catch these SHARKS.

EFCC should go after wherever they are hiding and be made to face the consequences of the actions.
