The Ilorin Zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC says it has recovered 3.6 billion naira and 10 houses from suspected looters.

EFCC Zonal head, Isyaka Sharu, who spoke today in Ilorin during the annual International Anti-corruption Day rally, said that at the eve of the last handing over, EFCC saved the state of an attempt to loot over 4 billion naira of its tax refund.

The State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazak said that the match against corruption was for everybody, noting that “if we do not kill corruption, it will kill all of us’’.

AbdulRazak said that corruption was detrimental to the economy and social development because it reduces the capacity to work.

The governor commended the anti-graft body for its efforts and support in the recovery of money.

AbdulRazak said the 4.8 billion naira was still intact in the government cash reserve, and it would be used to work for the state economy and balance the budget for next year.
