EFCC to file 800 new corruption cases, prosecute Orji Kalu again


The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, has said the anti-graft agency is set to file 800 new corruption cases in court while he vows to prosecute former governor of Abia State, Orji Kalu, again.

Bawa made this known yesterday to State House reporters in Abuja during the weekly briefing by Heads of MDAs to give an update on their performance in office.


He said the cases to be filed will border on public corruption and cybercrime. The cases were delayed largely because of the strike by judiciary workers who shut down courts in Nigeria for over two months and only suspended the strike this week.

“We have prosecuted a number of people within this period, secured 185 convictions and you are aware that for two months, the courts have been on strike. We have filed 367 cases and as I said within this week, we are going to file 800 cases in court on public corruption as well as cybercrime.”

Bawa also vowed that ex-governor Kalu “will be prosecuted all over again.”
