AGF Directs EFCC, Others to submit criminal cases involving "big looters"

Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Mr Abubakar Malami, SAN, has directed prosecuting agencies to compile list of “high profile criminal cases” they are prosecuting to him for transfer to a special committee.

Malami, a few months ago, constituted the National Prosecution Coordination Committee (NPCC) with a brief to assume prosecution of identified “high profile criminal cases”.
The minister said the committee was constituted to ensure “smooth and prompt” prosecution of such cases. 
The directive for the agencies to compile the list of such pending cases was announced in Abuja at a meeting with heads of prosecuting agencies and representatives of the AGF.
