NFIU vandalisation: FG begins manhunt of perpetrators

The federal government has begun a manhunt for the culprits behind the vandalisation at  the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) office in Abuja.

ElombahNews gathered that the perpetrators were led by a serving chief superintendent of police whose identity is yet to be revealed.

This medium also learnt that six persons were involved in the security breach which say sensitive equipments and materials destroyed.

A source at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) office in Abuja informed our correspondent of the development.

The source said that that in all, seven computers containing sensitive financial information were taken away while others were damaged.

It was gathered that the federal government has enlisted the services of the Department of State Security (DSS) in the manhunt.

Also enlisted, it was gathered, is the Nigeria Police Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) located in Area 10, Abuja.

ElombahNews had reported that the NFIU new office was breached in what appears to be a possible cover-up.

The cover-up, it seems, was to cover the tracks of the suspended former EFCC Acting Chairman over the ongoing investigation.

The report said that some unknown people reportedly broke into the NFIU office and destroyed computers containing certain vital and sensitive documents that could help in the investigation.

It was gathered that some officials of the NFIU had appeared before the Justice Ayo Salami panel investigating Magu on Thursday.

They appeared to clarify certain grey areas, especially as relating to some accounts suspected to have been used for transactions.

The NFIU officials, however, told the panel that by their operational protocols and procedure, they don’t go about with such documents.

The officials advised members of the panel to visit their office Friday morning to sight the documents requested for.

Unfortunately, for them, before the panel members got to the NFIU office, some unknown people had broken into their office.

The assailants went straight to the room where the documents were stored in the computers and destroyed them all.
