Dr Igbuzor stated this while speaking on the scandal of the N23 billion Police Pension Fund of 2013 and also the N7.74 billion Police Equipment Fund fraud of 2007.

He also recalled that the N5.7 billion alleged fraud at the National Economic Reconstruction Fund (NERFUND) also in 2013 uncovered by the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation’s Joint Special Examination.
