1 min


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has promised to protect the investments made by Nigerians in Diaspora in the country.

Mr Ibrahim Magu, Acting Chairman of EFCC, stated this at the 2019 Nigeria Diaspora Investment Summit with the theme “Leveraging Diaspora Resources for Economic Growth“ on Wednesday in Abuja.

Magu said that the EFCC mandate was designed to encourage investors, most especially the foreigner, to find Nigeria as an attractive investment haven.

“I want to assure all Nigerians in Diaspora that we will do everything possible to protect your investments.

“There are lots of Nigerian professionals abroad who have done lots of good things and earned legitimate incomes who want to come home and invest and we have made it a kind of very special issue.

“Right now we are working on ECOWAS level on how we can partner with all law enforcement agencies in ECOWAS Countries.

“We are going to adopt a protocol; the protocol will be presented before the Heads of State maybe around February 2020 it will be adopted.

“So, it is no longer going to be business as usual; if you steal money here and go and hide it there, we will follow you there without any protocol and bring you back,” he said.
