Corruption Survey Rating EFCC 6th Most Corrupt Govt. Agency Misleading, Says Spokesman



EFCC-boys1-638x300The Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, has picked holes with a recent survey conducted by a Non-Governmental Organisation, NGO, which rated the anti-corruption agency among the most corrupt government agencies in the country, saying the finding was “misleading” with the intent to “impinge the integrity” of the commission.

CLEEN Foundation, in its 2013 National Crime Victimization and Safety Survey published on Monday with support from the MacArthur Foundation, rated the EFCC as the sixth government agency likely to demand a bribe with 23 per cent propensity to demand bribe.

Similarly, the survey found the Nigerian Police Force to be the most corrupt agency with 33 per cent propensity to demand bribe followed in descending order by the Nigeria Immigration Services (26 per cent); Independent and Corrupt Practices Commission, ICPC, (25 percent); Nigeria Customs Service (24 per cent); and Power Holding Company of Nigeria, PHCN, (23 per cent).

The EFCC, however, says it disagrees with the outcome of the survey.

A statement signed by EFCC’s head of media and publicity, Wilson Uwujaren read, “The Commission considers its integrity as a core value and has toiled relentlessly to sustain its reputation as an effective law enforcement organisation with zero tolerance for corruption. It will therefore not fold its hand while some arm chair researchers desperate to justify a grant, use the result of a spurious survey to cast aspersion on its integrity”.

While accusing CLEEN Foundation of making “sweeping conclusion” generated from” friends and cronies”, the EFCC spokesman challenged the organization to make public, details of the questionnaire it used in conducting the survey.

“If we may ask, how many people in  Borno, Ekiti , or Cross River states have come in contact with operatives of the EFCC to be able to make informed opinion as to whether they are corrupt or not? Which towns, local governments and wards did the survey cover? What questions were asked; what response evaluation methods were used?” the anti-graft agency asked.

While vouching for the integrity of its operatives, the EFCC noted that it was dealing with rampant cases of impersonation of its operatives which might have influenced the notion that the commission was corrupt.

The statement, however, urged members of the public to report operatives of the commission caught demanding bribes.

    EFCC has nothing to denies. Are they not the ruling parties’ mechanism for punishment of their opposition parties? This has rendered them a toothless bull-dog.
    I reason in line with the NGO’s result.

    I agree with the Ngo’s result that EFCC is the most currupted, bribe collector in nigeria. If you will agree with, former president Obasanjo purposely set up the commission, being the the most fraudulent PDP of his regime to fight opposition party members who challenge him when he embezzle money.

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.
