In a bid to make a mark in the area of diligent prosecution of cases, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has concluded plans to enlist the services of four Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs) to join its prosecution team.

A statement by the Commissionís Head of Media and Publicity, Femi Babafemi, disclosed today that "the Senior Advocates will join our present team of external and internal solicitors to strengthen our prosecution team."

The latest move by the Commission ,according to the statement, is part of ongoing efforts by its Executive Chairman, Mrs Farida Waziri, to inject vigour into the activities of the Commission especially in the areas of intelligence gathering, investigation and prosecution.

"The bid to enlist the services of the Senior advocates is also in tandem with Mrs Waziriís belief that the end result in criminal prosecution is conviction and as such, no effort should be spared in the diligent prosecution of the Commissionís cases in the interest of justice and for the overall benefit of Nigeria," the statement added.
