EFCC Gives Update On Banks Involved In Money Laundering

EFCC Accuses Banks of Money Laundering
Ibrahim Magu, the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has accused 10 unnamed commercial banks in Nigeria for money laundering.

The EFCC boss himself Mr. "Magu" stated this on yesterday, while speaking at a round table meeting with managing directors of top financial institutions in Nigeria.

The EFCC boss spoke on the theme: “Roles and Obligations of Managing Directors of Banks in Nigeria in Curbing Vote Buying During an Election, Illicit Financial Flows and Other Related Matters in Nigeria”.

He said: 
It is worrisome to note that in 2018, statistics available to the EFCC shows that out of about 28 commercial banks in Nigeria, 10 banks evacuated out of Nigeria through Travelex Nigeria Limited the sums of GBP- 50,832,560; USD-8,057,756; EURO-39,986,560 and RAND-7,500,000. The reasons for these evacuations are still sketchy.
We must note that the impact of illicit financial flows from the country undermine the stability and integrity of the financial institutions.”
