LAGOS: THE London Metropolitan Police would enhance collaborations with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to curb such crimes, a senior official said.
Jonathan Benton, Head of Proceeds of International Corruption Unit, said this after leading a delegation for a meeting with EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Lamorde, in Abuja. The delegation met the EFCC head to further discuss ways to tackle corruption head-on in Nigeria.
According to EFCC, Benton, who said the fight against graft could only be won through collaborative efforts of all stakeholders, promised to further strengthen the existing relationship with EFCC in the area of investigations of cases.
“It is important that we play our part in fighting corruption. Therefore , we are very privileged to have this long-standing relationship with EFCC.
On our part, we shall continue to partner EFCC with investigation of its cases in Nigeria. So far, we have had success stories,” he stated.
He commended the local anti-graft agency for the feats so far recorded in the fight against corruption in Nigeria but urged it to rest on its laurels.
