Nigerians will know terrorism financiers at the right time –EFCC chair, Bawa



The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Abdulrasheed Bawa, said Nigerians will know the identities of terrorism financiers in the country at the right time.

The Chairman of the anti graft agency made this known in an interview on Channels Television. Bawa, who collapsed during an official function at the Aso Rock Villa earlier on Thursday, said he had seen his doctor and “everything about me is okay, except for the fact that I’m a bit dehydrated and I need to take a lot of water”.

When asked whether it was appropriate for the government to conceal the identities of terror financiers whose activities have led to the killing of thousands of innocent lives, Bawa said, “Of course, transparency is one of the bedrock(s) of this administration, of course, I am not a spokesman for this administration, but I believe that at the right time Nigerians will get to know those that are financing terrorism in this country and beyond as well.

“These are issues that are beyond the borders of this country and of course we are working tirelessly with our partners overseas as well as other sister agencies at home. We are working, it is not something we should come out to say that these are the modus operandi that we are adopting.”

Though the Nigerian Government and the Nigerian Army had severally claimed the Boko Haram had been ‘technically defeated’ and ‘weakened’, it is surprising to know that Boko Haram is still very active in the Northeast, killing and tormenting Nigerians in the Northeast daily.
