A member of the committee, Rasaq Atunwa, while speaking to newsmen after Magu's presentation, said
"I said the EFCC has recovered a lot of money for Nigeria and he (Magu) mentioned that in that regard, more sectors of the economy are likely to come under investigative activities. I said ‘will it include the petroleum sector’? He said, ‘yes’. And I said ‘would it include investigating the following people – Diezani Alison-Madueke, Okonjo-Iweala and a particular oil magnate’, and he said ‘yes’; those people are already under their investigative radar.”he saidAlison-Madueke, was last year arrested by the National Crime Agency in the UK over allegations of money laundering and fraud.
