Group Tasks Army to Partner with EFCC, ICPC to Probe Certain NGOs24 Sep 2019, by CS Database in
Incidents & Issues
The Public Accountability Network (PAN) has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as well as the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) to investigate the activities of certain Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) covertly undermining the country’s fight against terror.
The group appealed to the anti-graft agencies to forthwith probe the funding sources of NGOs in the NorthEast in a press statement signed by Executive Director, Mark Daniel Atawodi, on Sunday in Abuja. According to PAN, there are some NGOs under the disguise of humanitarian mission which in reality are working to sabotage the military’s remarkable progress for their own selfish interest. “Even some local NGOs are complicit of running errands financed from such questionable funds that allowed them to operate as proxies and franchises for the larger saboteurs.” The group called on the Army to not only ban any group found to be collaborating with Boko Haram but indict them and their managers put on trial with a view to securing the stiffest punishment possible.
