It first discuses the corruption situation in Nigeria by highlighting public office holders who have been associated with corruption charges. Descriptive and  chi-square analysis are used, and results reveal that the performance of the EFCC has been affected by government interference (p<.o05).

 

However, although the anti-graft body has not been able to reduce the incidence of bank fraud (P>.05) bad governance and advance fee fraud have recorded appreciable reduction (p<.05). areas of success as well as challenges that need to be addressed are identified. Specifically, it is recommended tat the bill that established EFCC should be amended to reduce government interference and improve its manpower development especially in the areas of fraud and internet scam detection.
