This team, comprising the Appointment, Promotion and Disciplinary Committee and the Department of Ethics and Integrity, will thoroughly examine the case and recommend appropriate disciplinary measures.
Chairman Olukoyede has emphasized that the EFCC is committed to holding its officers accountable for their actions, and has stated that no stone will be left unturned in ensuring that the officers answer for their unprofessional conduct.
