The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been applauded as “a good child of the Police”.
The Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun made the remark when he received Mr. Ola Olukoyede, the EFCC Boss in his office at the Force Headquarters.
Egbetokun expressed delight with the works of the EFCC and promised enhanced support for the Commission.
“We are proud to have the EFCC as our child. We will continue to support you”, he said.
Earlier, the Chairman of the anti-graft agency told the IGP that it is a waste of energy for the police and the commission to be investigating same cases.
Olukoyede expressed the need for a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU between the Police and the EFCC to address issues of overlapping of operations.
“There is no need to dissipate energy investigating similar cases. We can come up with an MoU to properly address such issues”, he said.
He called for better mutual understanding, promising that the EFCC would continue to leverage its relationship with the Police for enhanced collaboration with it.
Olukoyede applauded the Police for nurturing the EFCC from infancy and expressed delight with the existing synergy between the two Agencies.
“We are proud of the nurturing we received from the Police and solicit more support, cooperation and collaboration given the specialized nature of our works”, he said.
