The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has, in the last 100 days, recovered $261 million, N6 billion, and 13,000 pounds illegally acquired by suspected criminals.

Also recovered by the anti-graft agency were 30 real estates, 32 automobiles, a farmland and other properties acquired by suspected fraudsters.

The commission said it was set to prosecute 800 cybercrime cases in various courts beginning from next week.

The agency also said it will proceed with corruption cases against former governors, ministers and ex-bank chiefs.

EFCC Chairman Abdulrasheed Bawa, gave these details during the Presidential Media Team ministerial briefing at Aso Villa in Abuja yesterday.

He said 800 cybercrime cases would be filed next week in courts.
