Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has vowed to ensure that there is transparency and accountability in the use of the resources meant for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the country.

He made the declaration on Thursday in Maiduguri, Borno state capital, 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 organisations and other civil society organisations that were helping victims of the Boko Haram insurgency in the city.

“We want to be sure that there is transparency, accountability and judicious use of the money allocated to internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Maiduguri and elsewhere,” he said.


“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 further gave indication of plans to mobilise 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,” he added.
