Ibrahim Magu, the acting national head of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has admonished Nigerians not to be in a hurry to become rich.
Magu gave the advice on Thursday, September 12, as he sensitised residents and indigenes of Kaduna on the mandate of the EFCC.
Represented by Mailafia Yakubu, the head of Kaduna zonal office, Magu explained types of cases the anti-graft agency deals with and the relationship it has with the judiciary, Vanguard reports.
The EFCC's boss urged parents and guardians to have eagle eyes over the activities of their children and wards as statistics reveal that youths are more prone to crimes.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the EFCC had said it would recover all assets meant for the development of the country.
Magu made the pledge following a revelation by the federal government on Thursday, September 12, that the amount of money looted from government treasury through corrupt practices stood at $400 billion.
