EFCC to go after doctors who issue fake Medical Reports To Criminals, Says Magu

Riding on the strides made in its antigraft war, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has placed on its radar going after medical doctors who connive with suspected criminals to issue fake medical reports.

Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu who disclosed this during a press briefing in Abuja, noted that the commission is looking at investigating other sister agencies such as the police, NGOs in the northeast who carry out similar practices.

He said, “We will extend our investigation to doctors who connive with criminals and give them fake medical reports.

“There is a way they can get a false report from hospitals abroad because they can contact them and they will send it to them, we need to put them on the spot so the practice of giving fake medical reports must stop.”

The EFCC boss urged the media to join the fight against corruption by promoting anti-corruption narratives.
