Nigeria's EFCC purportedly intercepts N32.4 million intended for vote buying in Lagos. Feb 24, 2023
With the seizure in Lagos of the amount of N32, 400,000 (Thirty-two Million, Four Hundred Thousand Naira), which was allegedly used for vote buying, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission's (EFCC) extensive operation to prevent vote trading and other financial malfeasance ahead of tomorrow's presidential and national assembly elections may have started to bear fruit.
The seizure was achieved, according to a statement from the anti-graft organization, by agents of the Commission's Lagos Zonal Command. The subject in question has been detained for additional interrogation.
In order to prevent dishonest people from undermining the integrity of the elections through financial inducement, the Chairman of the Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa, has urged all Commission employees assigned to election monitoring tasks to act courageously.
All of the federation's states and the FCT currently have tactical teams of operators on the ground. Social media users have already shared phone hotlines for the public to contact Commission representatives with information about financial misconduct. The number's specifics are available on the EFCC's social media channels.
