AGF to Magu, others: You must submit high profile cases to check abuses, proliferation

The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), has justified his directive to the Acting Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu and heads of other security agencies on why they must submit case files of high profile cases to his office to check abuses and proliferation.

Malami stated this during a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday.

He said that one of the major reasons for the directive is the need for synergy among the agencies adding that the development was sequel to the directive on the creation of a Co-ordinating Centre for all Federal Government Criminal Justice Agencies to fast track case management and effective prosecution just like the system being operated in Lagos State.

Explaining that the Federal Ministry of Justice is being repositioned, Malami said that the coordination Centre will enable the office of the AGF have firsthand information of the status of all criminal investigation/trial in the country.
