The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Mustapha Magu has vowed to ensure that there is transparency and accountability in the use of the resources meant for internally displaced persons in Maiduguri, Borno State and elsewhere in the country. He made the declaration Thursday in Maiduguri while speaking at the newly reopened Zonal office of the Commission.

The EFCC boss expressed worry about complaints of corruption in IDP Camps, coming from international humanitarian organizations and other civil society organizations that are helping the distressed victims of the Boko Haram insurgency in the city and beyond.

“We want to be sure that there is transparency, accountability and judicious use of the money allocated to Internally Displaced Persons in Maiduguri and elsewhere.

“What we are doing is gathering intelligence but the culprits behind the sufferings in the IDP camps will be invited sooner or later by the EFCC,” he said.

The EFCC boss further gave indication of plans to mobilize women to buy into the fight against corruption.

“I will bring in civil societies and women groups in Borno State in the fight against corruption and we will equally organize a workshop for them similar to the one we did for children in Abuja, so as to educate them on the ills of corruption, ” Magu stated.
