She said: “We have laws in this country. We have processes and policies on how things ought to be done. If we are law-abiding, then we must do things according to the law.
“Anything outside that is going to be illegal, in my own view.”
NAIJ.com earlier reported that the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Ibrahim Magu on Thursday, September 7, said the commission has only recovered 15% of the funds allegedly looted by the former minister of petroleum resources Diezani Alison-Madueke.
Magu said the EFCC was currently working with the government of the United Kingdom on Alison-Madueke's case to ensure her extradition to Nigeria.
The EFCC chairman who spoke during a visit to Punch said the EFCC under his leadership would do all within its powers to ensure that all funds stolen from the coffers of the Nigerian government are recovered.
