EFCC says it may probe Nigerians named in the Panama Papers scandal

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) seems to be contemplating on probing Nigerians named in the Panama Papers scandal after they obtained a copy of the Panama Papers.
According to a EFCC source, the commission is studying the paper in order to make their next move.
The source said:
“We are studying all the documents and definitely we will investigate the allegations against all the Nigerians implicated in the Panama Papers.
“These allegations may lead to further clues on whether or not public funds were used in acquiring some of these secret assets.
Those on the list are Senate President Bukola Saraki, former Senate President David Mark, Saraki’s wife, Toyin Saraki, former Delta State Governor James Ibori, Mr. Laolu Saraki, Mr. Obi Asika and Mr. Olufela Ibidapo.
