The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu has described Rivers State as headquarters for corruption.

According to him, Rivers State is second to Lagos in money laundering, adding that corruption is high in the state due to oil activities in the region.

He said that the Commission is doing its best to fight the menace which has eaten deep into the system.

Magu stressed further that the court injunction obtained by former a Governor of Rivers State, Peter Odili, to stop the Commission from further investigation and prosecuting him will not stand the test of time.

He said the EFCC will follow the matter up to its logical conclusion, stressing that despite the fact that the matter has been taking over by event, the Commission will not relent in carrying out its duties as regards the financial crime case.

He noted that the matter which is before the Supreme Court for over thirteen years will be followed up to its logical conclusion as the perpetual injunction can no longer hold.
