General Officer Commanding, GOC, 82 Division, Nigerian Army, Enugu, Major-General LasisiAdegboye has commended the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, South-East Zone, and expressed readiness to strengthen their existing collaboration.

He made the commendation yesterday when he received a delegation led by the Zonal Head, EFCC,Mr Johnson Oshodi at his office.

“Just like the Nigerian Army, the EFCC has been perceived in the negative by the general public despite the responsibilities placed on both organisations and tremendous successes achieved. You cannot be deterred. Sometimes, when the attacks come, know that corruption is fighting back, do not be discouraged. Just know that you just hit the right spot.”

While stressing the importance of security and law enforcement synergy, the GOC said the military, EFCC and the Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, need constant synergy to address acts of criminality in the zone.

“Count on us to always assist you in your operations in the South-East, especially those likely to turn out violent, even as I encourage you to continuously liaise with other law enforcement agencies for better results,’’ Adegboye said.

Oshodi, while revealing that the purpose of his visit was to seek continued support and collaboration, stated that “we are here to synergize because we are working for the same Nigerian people and we need inter-agency co-operation to achieve a better Nigeria and fight the menace of internal insecurity. We need to team up to curtail or even apprehend the powerhouse of those who sponsor and fuel insecurity in Nigeria.”

According to him, “terrorism which you fight obviously cannot take place without sponsors and it involves a lot of funds and laundering of those funds and this is where we come in.”

He thanked the GOC for his support to the commission in the areas of training and water supply.
