The acting chairman of the economic and financial crimes commission, Mr Ibrahim Magu,  hit at state governors, saying that some of them deliberately fuelled insecurity in their states just to collect more money as security vote.

He noted that some of the governors now covertly promote insecurity as justification to inflate their security vote.

Mr. Magu also alleged that there was a link between corruption, banditry and terrorism.

He spoke in Abuja at the induction programme for returning and newly-elected state governors held at the presidential villa.

His allegations were contained in a paper, titled, “imperative of fighting corruption/terrorism financing in Nigeria,” which he presented during the programme.
