- Ibrahim Magu, chairman of the EFCC, warns medical doctors against issuing fake medical reports to suspects
- Magu says the agency will start arresting medical doctors who issue fake reports to those under investigation
- The EFCC boss also disclosed that some non-governmental agencies in the northeast are also under investigation
The head of the anti-corruption agency, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has said the body will now beam its searchlight on doctors who issue fake medical reports to suspects under prosecution.
Magu, according to Daily Sun, said this in Abuja when he spoke with journalists.
The acting chairman of the EFCC also said the battle to rid the country of internet fraudsters was not a witch-hunt exercise as operatives of the commission carry out their activities through serious investigations.
Magu explained that the agency was also investigating the activities of some non-governmental organisations in the north eastern part of the country.

The witness is the ninth so far called to testify in the trial of Dikko and he told the court that the alleged diverted sum belongs to the Nigerian Air Force (NAF).
The report quoted a statement by the EFCC as saying while being cross-examined by Onyeachi Ikpeazu, counsel to the anti-graft agency, Bello explained that the money was meant for some operations.
