Only the Guilty are Afraid
THE Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, is broke, cannot pay salaries of staff and
services of prosecutors to carry out operational functions, its Secretary, Mr.
Emmanuel Aremu, has said.

Aremu disclosed
this Monday, at a public hearing on A Bill for An Act to Establish the
Nigeria Financial Intelligence Agency, NFIA, 2013, organised by the Senate
Committee on Drugs, Narcotics and Economic Crimes.
He said the
financial challenges facing the activities of the anti–graft agency was as a
result of what he called non-remittance of appropria-ted funds for the agency
by the Federal Government over the months.

The EFCC Secretary
said: “I could recollect when the committee paid us an oversight function
visit.
“We did make our
financial position known to the committee that EFCC does not have N2 million in
its accounts.
“We have been
complaining that no money has been released for us for operations.
“If we can afford
to pay salary this month, that is all. That is the position under which we
operate presently.”
He opposed the
intention of the Bill in making Financial Intelligence Unit, FIU, currently a
department in EFCC, an independent Intelligence Unit on its own, insisting that
“FIU, in most climes of the world, is run as a secret operational centre at the
background of a major body like EFCC as it is presently in Nigeria.
”FIU as intended by
the Bill should not be expo-sed to the public as a separate body on its own.
“It should be kept at the background as it is in most climes of the world.”
However, the
Central Bank of Nigeria, National Intelligence Agency and National Agency for
Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, all rose in support of the proposed
bill.
