In his response, EFCC’s Zonal Head, South-South, Ishaq Salihu expressed his appreciation to  Agwu for his kind words and commendation.

He said the EFCC will not relent in its fight against corruption and economic and financial crimes.

He noted that for corruption was largely responsible for high carnage on our roads.

He also drew a link between capital flight and stolen money resulting in bad  road works and high carnage on the  highways.
