The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), while replying one of its twitter follower with the handle, @asantoo11a, said that all looted funds recovered by it are paid into the consolidated revenue account of the Federal Government.
The commission stated this on its Twitter handle, @officialefcc, in response to a question from the follower who had asked: “`When are we sharing our recovered looted money?’’
“Recovered funds are paid into the consolidated revenue account of the Federal Government,’’ it tweeted in response.
A section of the public has been raising questions about where crime proceeds recovered by the commission are kept.
The EFCC also said that there was no hiding place for looters, including those who traveled abroad to evade the arm of the law.
“Our network of partners includes the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) and other international law enforcement agencies.
“Perpetrators cannot hide forever. Send a petition,’’ it said in response to an enquiry by one Biyi Soremekun.
Using the handle @adebiyie200, Soremekun asked what would happen in a situation where an individual travels out of the country after perpetrating fraud.
“What happens in a situation where someone defrauds (through issuance of dud cheques or falsification of land documents) you and leaves the country before you realise it?
The commission advised victims and members of the general public to forward their petitions through its offices nearest to them, adding that they could do so anonymously.
