IGP Egbetokun lauds EFCC, says commission is living up to expectations of Nigerians

The Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, has disclosed that the Nigeria Police Force was proud to have the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, as its child.


The IGP stated this in Abuja on Monday when the Executive Chairman of the EFCC, Ola Olukoyede paid him a courtesy visit at the Force Headquarters.


The IGP described the EFCC “as a good child of the Police” and promised enhanced support for the commission.

“We are proud to have the EFCC as our child. We will continue to support you”, he said.


Earlier in his speech, Olukoyede applauded the police for nurturing the EFCC from infancy and expressed delight with the existing synergy between the two agencies.

“We are proud of the nurturing we received from the police and solicit more support, cooperation and collaboration given the specialized nature of our works”, he said.

He drew the attention of the IGP to the need for a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, between the police and the EFCC to address issues of overlapping of operations.

“There is no need to dissipate energy investigating similar cases. We can come up with an MoU to properly address such issues”, he said.
