On Sunday, May 7, 2023, Dr. George Ekpungu, Secretary to the Commission, issued the guarantee when he visited the Command for an inspection.

Ekpungu expressed his delight to reporters that the blaze did not impair crucial aspects of the Commission’s work after taking them on a tour of the damaged premises.

He pointed out that all of the Commission’s procedures have been fully digitized with backups at the central server in Abuja thanks to the digitization initiative started by the organization’s leadership under Abdulrsheed Bawa.

According to reports, the event on Thursday was brought on by an unexpected surge in the public power source.

Ekpungu, however, said that the Commission must wait until the ongoing investigation is over before making any definitive claims about what caused the inferno.

But he expressed satisfaction that nobody died as a result of the terrible event.

We cannot at this point in time know the exact cause of the fire but the preliminary investigation reveals it was a spark. We are grateful to God that no life was lost and our critical components of operations were saved. For now, we don’t know the cause of the inferno but the investigation will tell us the cause of the fire and that will be done by professionals. We thank God that in the records, our armory, suspects, detainees and every other thing critical to our work are safe.” – he said.

Ekpungu added;

And you know EFCC is ICT sophisticated. Whatever we have here, we have it at head office. So, we have a way of recovering a lot of things. So, since the coming of our chairman, we have been digitalising our processes. What happened here will not affect our operations”, he said.
