571 bank accounts used by politically exposed persons in Nigeria to steal public funds have been uncovered by the Justice Ayo Salami led presidential probe panel investigating activities of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC and its suspended acting Chairman Ibrahim Magu.

According to a report earlier published by the Pilot newspaper, a highly placed source, the discovery was made possible through the forensic investigation audit carried out on the EFCC.

It stated that from the bulky documents sighted, almost all Nigerian commercial banks are affected in the deals which list transaction details which clearly state who got what amount.

It quoted as source as saying that from the forensic investigation report, individuals and corporate entities that monies were paid into their coffers without any justification would be forced to refund to the federal government or face prosecution, adding that not less than 2,700 individuals and 780 companies benefitted from the N31 billion largesse paid into their various accounts.
