Nigeria Has Spent N6tn On Terrorism Since 2008 – EFCC

The chairman of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa has disclosed that the Federal Government has reportedly spent N6tn on the terrorism war since 2008.

According to reports, Bawa disclosed this while presenting a paper titled, ‘Combating Crime, Corruption and Implication for Development and Security,’ at the 38th Cambridge International Symposium on Economic Crime, organised by the Centre for International Documentation on Organised and Economic Crime, Jesus College, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom.

From a statement by the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, Bawa had stated that.

“The spoiler effects on countries’ development processes are diverse, and particularly severe for fragile states: economic crime, including illicit financial flows, diverts much needed resources needed to rebuild countries’ public services, from security and justice to basic social services such as health and education.”
