The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, has promised to investigate cases of corruption in refugee camps across the country.

A statement by the EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, said Mr. Magu made the pledge in Maiduguri while speaking at the newly reopened zonal office of the commission in the state.

The statement quoted the EFCC as saying the commission would focus on ensuring that there was transparency and accountability in the use of resources meant for internally displaced persons in Maiduguri, as well as in other parts of the country.

The statement further said Mr. Magu expressed concern about allegations of corruption taking place in IDP Camps, as claimed by International Humanitarian Organizations and other civil society groups.

“We want to be sure that there is transparency, accountability and judicious use of the money allocated to Internally Displaced Persons in Maiduguri and elsewhere.

“What we are doing is gathering intelligence but the culprits behind the sufferings in the IDP camps will be invited sooner or later by the EFCC,” he said.

According to the statement, the EFCC boss gave indication of the commission’s plans to partner women and civil society activists as part of the fight against corruption in the IDP camps.

“I will bring in civil societies and women groups in Borno state in the fight against corruption and we will equally organize a workshop for them similar to the one we did for children in Abuja, so as to educate them on the ills of corruption, ” Mr. Magu reportedly said.
