The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has stated that its surveillance has been beamed on the operations of the Mavrodi Mondial Moneybox popularly known as ‘MMM’.
This disclosure was made by the spokesman of the anti-graft agency, Wilson Uwujaren, during an interview with Daily Post at a training programme in Port Harcourt.
Uwujaren, while confirming that the anti-corruption agency has already placed the MMM under surveillance, however, said that the House of Representatives cannot direct the Commission to investigate what he referred to as a faceless wonder bank.
His words: “We can only arrest people based on the evidence that we have. The House made a resolution but the resolution is a public announcement.
“We have always been advising people not to patronize wonder banks because experience over time has shown that their activities are not sustainable.
“If you get involved in it, you will eventually get hurt. What we are currently doing is to sensitize people. We know people want to make quick money as a result of recession through this MMM.
“The unfortunate thing about this MMM is that it is not a Nigerian firm but we are looking at and we will still tell the media whatever we find out.”
