The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Nigerian Army have agreed to tackle terrorism financing.
EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, expressed the readiness of the body to partner with the Army on intelligence sharing and capacity building.
Bawa made the pledge while addressing officers of the Nigerian Army School of Artillery in Kachia, Kaduna State.
The anti-graft stressed that modern warfare has gone beyond kinetics and exchange of gunfire.
He said the military and other security agencies must “choke” the source of funding of terrorists and identify their sponsors.
Bawa, who spoke through the Kaduna Zonal Commander Harry Erin, added that the EFCC is the lead agency in investigating and prosecuting terrorism financing.
Deputy Commandant of the Army School, Brigadier General Emmanuel Zakari Karau thanked the EFCC for its efforts to block the funding of insurgents.
