EFCC Record 3,785 Convictions In 2022


In total, 3,785 (three thousand seven hundred and eighty-five) convictions were recorded by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in 2022 throughout all of its Commands.

The result of an evaluation of the Commission’s performance in the previous year, the number reveals a 70.5% improvement above its performance for 2021. Considering that the Commission only lost 41 cases during the period, or 1.07%, it also reflects a 98.93% success record in prosecution.

The Lagos Command of the Agency, as in 2021, recorded the most convictions (765), closely followed by the Ibadan Command (573), the Port Harcourt Zonal Command (567), and the headquarters (314).

The number of convictions obtained by the Commission in 2022 is the greatest since the EFCC‘s founding and continues a growing trend that started soon after President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration took office.

2015 saw the election of the Buhari administration, which ran on three promises: security, economic recovery, and combating corruption. 2015 saw a total of 103 convictions according to the EFCC. In 2016, the Buhari administration’s first full year in power, there were 195 convictions as a result. In 2017, it increased to 312; in 2018, it increased to 1280; in 2019, it decreased somewhat to 976 convictions; in 2020, the year of COVID-19, it increased to 2220.

Over 3574.8% more EFCC convictions have been obtained over the seven years of the Buhari administration, from 103 to 3785.

The Executive Chairman of the EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, commented on the performance and praised the staff for their commitment and tenacity despite the difficulties of criminal prosecution in court. He gave the assurance that the EFCC would keep using capacity building and other incentives to encourage all employee types to work more effectively.
