The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) says the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is one of its critical partners in the global fight against organized crime and corruption.
The remark was made by FBI Legal Attaché, Uche Ahamdi while commending the anti-graft agency for its professionalism.
The official led a delegation on a courtesy visit to the office of the EFCC Enugu Zonal Head, Oshodi Johnson, at the Independence Layout area.
“EFCC is a critical partner to the FBI. They have certain capacities in this fight against crime and are doing very well. We believe that if more values are added to their work, they would do even more”, he said.
Ahamdi who explained that the visit was to strengthen collaborative information sharing between the institutions, declared FBI continued support for the EFCC in its battle against fraudsters and other perpetrators of financial crimes.
Responding, Oshodi highlighted both organizations’ cordial and symbiotic relationship.
“FBI is a very important asset to the EFCC as we are to them. I thank you for your usual cooperation especially in the area of sharing intelligence,” he said.
It is worthwhile to note that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is the domestic intelligence and security service of the United States and its principal federal law enforcement agency.
