The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes, Abdulrasheed Bawa, on Thursday stated that he can’t expose the financier of terrorism in the country publicly.
It was earlier reported that the United Arab Emirates authorities in the course of the week identified six Nigerians as financiers of terrorism.
The Nigerians placed on the watch list were Abdurrahman Ado Musa, Salihu Yusuf Adamu, Bashir Ali Yusuf, Muhammed Ibrahim Isa, Ibrahim Ali Alhassan and Surajo Abubakar Muhammad.
Meanwhile, the EFCC boss when asked about sponsoring terrorism in the country on an interview on Thursday evening, said he can’t discuss a sensitive national security issue on national television.
Bawa asked, “If you are my adviser will you advise me to come on national television to tell the whole world regarding matters of sensitive national security issue?
“Certainly, not. But what I want to assure you is we are working tirelessly with other sister agencies to ensure that this country is free of terrorism.”
President Muhammadu Buhari administration had vowed to release the names of that financing terrorism in the country but has failed to fulfil its promise.
