Abdulrasheed Bawa, the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has said the agency secured 978 convictions in 2021.

Bawa disclosed this in Abuja when he visited the National Judicial Institute, NJI, Administrator, Justice Salisu Garba Abdullahi.

Bawa explained that his mission was to foster the cordial relationship between the NJI and the EFCC.

He said the NJI has been involved in capacity building for judges, justices, investigators, and prosecutors “in the areas we need to develop ourselves for the betterment of administration of criminal justice system”.

The chairman hailed the support of the judiciary in the fight against corruption in Nigeria.

Bawa expressed delight about court victories, including hundreds of forfeiture orders that led to the recovery of billions of Naira for federal and state governments as well as individuals.

He said at the last count, “we had secured 978 convictions this year, a testament to the fact that the judiciary is cooperating with us.”

In his remarks, Abdullahi stressed the need for relevant agencies to complement each other “so that Nigeria can be corrupt-free.”
