The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu and his team, paid a courtesy visit on Nobel laureate Prof Wole Soyinka at his residence last week.

Accompanied by some of his assistants, Magu reassured the acclaimed writer that the EFCC is not selective in its anti-corruption war.

EFCC boss revealed that funds looted by Nigerian politicians during the government of Goodluck Jonathan were enough to fund three years of the country’s budget.

Magu used the opportunity to speak about his plans on the crackdown on the corrupt officials in Nigeria.

Prof Soyinka reiterated his support to Magu and the EFCC and advised him to do all that is needed to arrest the culture of impunity and corruption in Nigeria.

The famous Nigerian writer commented on the investigation of purchase contracts for the army and the arrest of former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.

He also mentioned former oil minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, who is now in the UK undergoing treatment for cancer, noting that her health had been used to milk public sympathy.


At the end of the visit, Soyinka teased the anti-graft chieftain, wishing him “Good luck, but not that other one.”
