Kukah, who was conducted round the detention facility by the acting Chairman of the agency, Ibrahim Magu, described it as ‘clean and orderly.”

The priest, who used the visit to assess the state of the detention facilities, said he was satisfied that the EFCC paid premium attention to the well being of the detainees by ensuring that the facilities provided comfort to them.

Speaking after the tour, the clergyman said, “I discussed with some detained suspects like Femi Fani-Kayode, Musiliu Obanikoro and Reuben Abati; and I am quite pleased they are looking cheerful.

“I was also happy with the humility of the acting Chairman who took me round and the way he interacted with the detainees. This is what is important for our country so that nobody takes these kinds of things personal. I am happy I came.

“We are all staff of EFCC to the extent that we want a better country and we are doing what needs to be done. We’ll continue praying that God guides you, keeps you safe and ensure that we build a country that we all will be proud of. This country has suffered so much, but we hope and pray that we can bring the suffering and trauma to an end as we collectively fight corruption.”

  1. This bishop Kukah is becoming an embarrassment to the Catholic Church, to him he thinks it's okay that he chose this time his thieving friends are all in EFCC detention, to visit the organization's detention facility. About the prayers? I am not bothered abt his prayers for anybody, it's left to God to know which prayers to answer no matter who is saying them!
