Following a dawn attack, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission( EFCC) has decided to relocate its annex office handling sensitive cases.

Also, while the Nigeria Police Force intensified its investigation of the attack, the anti-graft agency was fingering high-profile suspects.

But the EFCC has started overhauling security in all its offices nationwide including the headquarters in Abuja.

According to findings by our correspondent, the EFCC opted to relocate its office from 30, Harper Crescent in Abuja after a review meeting on the recent attacks on its operatives and office.

A top source, who spoke in confidence, said: “As part of the implications of the attack on our annex office and constant death threats to our operatives, we have reviewed our security routine.

"We have decided to relocate the office which was attacked to a safer place in Abuja. This relocation is with immediate effect.

"The Acting Chairman of EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, has also directed all Zonal directors of the commission to beef up security in all offices and facilities.

"The commission had taken the steps in anticipation of the early completion of its headquarters.”As at press time, no suspect had been arrested in connection with the Wednesday attack on EFCC annex office.

The top source added: “The police force is handling the probe, we have left everything to their detectives to handle. We cannot be a judge in our own case.”

But the source said the EFCC was suspecting some high-profile suspects under investigation and some Politically Exposed Persons.

The source said: “We are working on clues implicating some some high-profile suspects and some Politically Exposed Persons.

"Some of these high-profile suspects had tried to influence EFCC leadership and operatives without any success.“We cannot be intimidated under any guise at all. We will pursue all cases to logical conclusion.”

Some unknown gunmen, who invaded the annex office of the EFCC, also dropped a death threat note for a senior investigator, Ishaku Sharu, who heads the Foreign Exchange Malpractices Fraud.
