The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa has said that he cannot expose the names of sponsors of Boko Haram as it was a sensitive national security issue.
Mr Bawa, who was a guest at Channels TV on Thursday night revealed that its agency was working with sister agencies to ensure terrorism to put to a stop.
“If you are my adviser will you advise me to come on national television to tell the whole world regarding matters of sensitive national security issue?,” Mr Bawa asked. “Certainly, not. But what I want to assure you we are working tirelessly with other sister agencies to ensure that this country is free of terrorism.”
On the 14th of September, 2021, the United Arab Emirate, UAE, published six names of Boko Haram sponsors in Nigeria but so far, no arrest has been made by the Nigerian government.
Mr Bawa, who slumped on Thursday while giving a speech at the National Identity Day Celebration in Presidential Villa revealed that he felt dizzy but has gone for a checkup and was hale and hearty.
