By Valentine Amanze

Three hundred and twenty-eight (328) new anti-graft detectives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) will on Saturday, August 31, 2019 graduate from the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA).

The Head, Media and Publicity, EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, disclosed this in a statement.

He stated that the graduation, which will feature a colourful passing out parade at NDA Parade Ground, Ribadu Campus, Kaduna, follows the completion of a year-long intensive training of the operatives in the elite training institution.

The reviewing officer for the parade, according to him, is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari, while the chief host is, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, the governor, Kaduna State.

The passing out parade of the Course 8 officers will be preceded on Friday, August 30, 2019 by a pre-graduation cocktail party for the cadets and their parents at NDA Cadets Mess, Ribadu Campus, Kaduna.

The Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, in 2016, commenced the training of the Commission’s cadets in the NDA which produced EFCC’s “Course 7” officers in 2017, comprising 314 detective superintendents.

Uwujaren further stated that the EFCC was optimistic that the 328 new officers would further boost the anti-corruption crusade of the Commission.
