The Benin Zonal Head of the EFCC, Muhtar Bello, represented the Acting Chairman of the Commission, Ibrahim Magu, who commended anti-corruption stakeholders in the state for identifying with the EFCC in its noble and patriotic duties, assuring that the Commission will “continue to work assiduously to ensure that monies stolen from Nigeria are returned to the country."
