He said the ‘eagle eyes’ of the commission were wide open and ready to catch any corrupt individual anytime, anywhere.

Muktar, who decried the high rate of cybercrime among youths in the country, warned fraudsters to desist from engaging in acts of corruption and steer clear of the three states under the watch of his command.

The Zonal Commander described the media as a critical ally in the war against corruption, saying,” how successful we do, depends largely on the media and the ability to achieve the commission’s preventive mandate, which is totally hinged on the active involvement of the media.

“With your pen, you could make or mar the fight against corruption. However, we believe that we cannot win the war against corruption without a buy-in from the people on our own.

” This is where the support of the media comes in. We need the media to help sensitize the people on the ills of corruption and economic crimes,” he appealed.

Muktar asserted that the task of fighting economic and financial crimes was painstaking and broad-based and should be embraced by all strata of the society, with the media serving as the channel of communication and enlightenment.
