EFCC Target Doctors Issuing Fake Medical Reports

The head of the anti-corruption agency, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, has said the body will now beam its searchlight on doctors who issue, fake medical reports to suspects under prosecution

Acting chairman of the commission, disclosed this at an interactive session with newsmen in Abuja on Friday.

Magu said “We will extend our investigation to doctors who connive with criminals and give them fake medical report. We have to go after them and fight them.

“Those facing corrupt allegations go as far of getting fake reports from abroad. So, the practice of giving fake medical report must stop,” he said.

Magu, also noted “Most of the cases during prosecution are not properly reported. The stories are not balanced. I don’t know how many people go to court to report the actual incident and the facts.

“That is why we have endless cases in court. We are seriously going back to the drawing board and we will call all the lawyers handling our cases to tell us the status of the cases ongoing.

“Some would win Senate and present medical results that they cannot appear in court. Some would be brought to the court room in a stretcher,” he added.

He, however, added that the commission was carrying out investigations into some non-governmental organisations operating in the North-East as they were being used to move cash around.
