EFCC Seeks Immigration’s Assistance in Tracking Fraudsters

The South South Zonal
Head of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC Ishaq Salilu,
on Wednesday January 18, 2017 called for an enhanced collaboration
between the EFCC and the Nigeria Immigration Services, NIS, in checking
the menace of criminals and fraudsters in the country. 
Salihu
made this remark when he received the Comptroller of Immigration,
Rivers State , A. B. Yarima who paid him a courtesy visit in his office.
”We pray for a deepened collaboration. We are very ready to partner
with you” he said. According to Salihu, the Nigeria Immigration Service
is such a critical organization in the country that an enhanced
collaboration will enable the Commission track fraudsters who despite
having their international passports seized by the Commission are still
able to sneak out of the country through other means. “How they
disappear remains a mystery to us,” he said.
Earlier
A.B Yarima, said he had visited other sister agencies and felt it was
imperative that he visits the EFCC. He said there was need for a synergy
between the Commission and the NIS to rid the society of crimes. “We
are ready and willing to continue the existing relationship between NIS
and the EFCC,” he said.
The
Rivers State Comptroller was accompanied by other top officers of NIS
including GB Dilosi, S.E. Legglack, both Deputy Comptroller, K. A.
Saqiq, Assistant Comptroller, and a hosts of others.
