Setup dedicated courts for speedy corruption trials – NLC tells FG

The Nigerian Labour Congress, while reacting to the recent attack on the EFCC headquarters by unknown gunmen, urged the federal government to setup dedicated courts for speedy disposal of corruption cases.

NLC president, Comrade Ayuba Wabba said that it was “necessary to call on the government to give the commission the requisite support including the setting up of dedicated courts for speedy disposal of corruption cases”.

Condemning the attack on the Area 7 office of the Economic and financial crimes commission, EFCC, Wabba said; “The attack represents the audacity of corruption and the shifting of the battle ground from the court room to the streets and should be condemned by all those who love this country.

The attack, clearly, was intended to deter and compel operatives of the commission from carrying to a logical conclusion their ongoing investigations/prosecutions.

In light of an earlier attack during which an operative sustained injuries, this cannot be a lone incident. Indeed, we see it as the new phase of corruption fighting back.

While we are not insensitive to the manifest danger in this new phase of corruption fighting back, we urge the commission and its operatives not to succumb to these desperate tactics or intimidation.We have no doubt the resort to Violence shows they have come to their wit’s end”.
