The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has asked Nigerians to deploy their energy to wage war against corruption in the country.

Spokesman of the commission, Dele Oyewale, made the appeal on Friday in Abuja, when protesters led by the Convener, Ibrahim Isiaka, stormed the commission’s headquarters to demand an investigation over allegations of terrorism financing in Zamfara State.

The protesters were carrying banners and placards with different inscriptions such as ‘we want peace in Zamfara’, ‘politicians must stop this madness’, among others.

The EFCC spokesman Dele Oyewale, who addressed the protesters and equally received a petition to be transmitted to the EFCC chairman, Ola Olukayode, said, “We appreciate the fact that when you see something, you say something.

“So you have seen something now and you have said something. We are going to do something. Our investigations, they are progressing; they are fully integrated and they are broad-based. And in a couple of days, you are going to hear from us concerning this.

“I’m going to hand it over to the Chairman and the Commission entirely will do the needful. So once again, I want to thank all of us for this protest.

“I want to also appeal to us that as we are leading a protest like this, let us deploy our energies towards the fight against corruption so that all of us will fight the monster together.”

Earlier, the convener, Isiaka, said, “We are propelled by an unwavering commitment to safeguarding our nation’s sanctity, and implores the EFCC to expeditiously order a meticulous and all-encompassing investigation into this weighty allegation.”
