The acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, has called on the Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Olusegun Adeniyi, to ensure that humanitarian organisations moving cash in the North-East secure clearance from the commission in order to check terrorists financing.

Magu said that the EFCC had been keeping an eye on the activities of persons and groups serving as humanitarian or aid workers within the region.

The commission chairman, who was represented by the head of EFCC Maiduguri zonal office, Lawrence Iwodi, during a courtesy visit on the Commander at Maimalari Barracks, Maiduguri, commended the efforts of the command in the fight against insurgency.

The EFCC boss said the agency had been monitoring undeclared cash above 1 million naira by individuals and organisations in Borno and Yobe states, adding that the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria had also ensured that such cash movements were reported.
