Oil Theft: EFCC to Train Army in Evidence Handling

In a bid to enhance the prosecution of suspects arrested for involvement in illegal oil bunkering in the Niger Delta, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has offered to train officers of the 6 Division, Nigerian Army in the intricate art of evidence gathering and handling to guarantee successful prosecutions in court.

Usman Iman, Zonal Head of the Port Harcourt office of the EFCC made the offer today, January 23, 2020, when he led senior officers of the Commission on a courtesy visit to the General Officer Commanding, 6 Division Nigerian Army, Major General F. O. Agugo.

According to him, the training will ensure “that evidence is secured to enhance prosecutions as lawyers often look for loopholes to frustrate the trial of oil theft cases.”
