The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed, on Tuesday called for a cooperation between all sectors of the Federal Government to join hands to fight the war against corruption and other related crimes.
Justice Mohammed said this at a workshop on ‘combating financial fraud, cyber and cross-border crimes’ organised in Abuja on Tuesday.
The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, who also spoke at the event, said he was currently working with the judiciary to ensure the success of government’s efforts to put an end to impunity in the land.
Malami also said:
More than $2trn has been confiscated and recovered in the last 12 years by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission
Responding, the CJN said the prompt disposal of criminal cases could only be achieved where “stakeholders in the justice sector work in tandem towards a common objective as a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.”
