    Timeline And Amount Of Recoveries By EFCC Since October 2016

    One of the most controversial agencies during the present Buhari administration is the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

    From the outset of the administration, it was obvious that the President was relying heavily on the agency to carry out his anti-corruption war. Since then, the EFCC has been more active than ever before, claiming to make several recoveries.

    While many have lauded the actions of the EFCC as sanitizing a corrupt polity, others claim that the agency has just been used by the Federal Government (FG) to target political enemies and deal with them. One of the most resounding arguments of critics of the EFCC remains their inability to produce a coherent and accurate record of the so-called loot they claim to be recovering.

    The Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, who has been denied confirmation as the substantial Chairman twice by the Senate, himself could not produce neither an accurate figure nor an estimate during his appearance before the legislators. SBM Intel has compiled a timeline of recoveries and the amounts EFCC claimed to recover between October 2015 and April 21, 2017 below.
