The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has raised an alarm of blackmail and smear attacks against the agency and the Chairman, Ibrahim Magu.

Dele Oyewale, in a statement on Wednesday, said the EFCC has enough facts about the sponsors of such insidious campaigns.

He said corruption will always fight back and that the agency was not surprised by the actions of “some overseas-based, politically-exposed and disgraced elements being investigated for unnerving acts of corruption”.

EFCC noted that it was uncharitable to link Magu with the ownership of some buildings belonging to individuals with verifiable addresses.

It describes as ridiculous, the allegation that Magu shied away from being served a “fictitious writ of summons” over a matter long decided by the Judiciary.

“The Commission finds every unfounded claim against it and its helmsman, as desperate backlash from disreputable elements suffering its uncompromising works against corrupt practices. Members of the public only need to ignore tendencies aimed at blackmailing the EFCC and its workforce.

“The Commission is on the trail of all the blackmailers and paid agents of darkness armed against it. Massive investigations of the platforms being used and their promoters have commenced. Facts about their operations shall be made known to the public.”

The statement added that appropriate legal actions are also being taken against bloggers and their promoters of “a campaign of calumny against the EFCC”.
