It’s not right for us to investigate same cases, EFCC To Police


The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mr. Ola Olukoyede  has told the Inspector General of Police,  Kayode Egbetokun that it is a waste of energy for the police and the anti-graft commission to be investigating same cases.

Olukoyede  said this on Monday when when he paid Egbetokun  a courtesy visit at the Force Headquarters. 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.  He called for better mutual understanding,  promising that the EFCC would continue to leverage  its relationship with the Police for enhanced collaboration with it.

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.

The IGP  in his remarks, expressed delight with the works of the EFCC , describing the Commission “ 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.
