Statement of Principle (Case Selection)

The CCFANigeria investigates and, where appropriate, prosecutes cases of serious or complex fraud (including cases of domestic or overseas fraud and corruption) which, in the opinion of the Director of the CCFANigeria, call for the multi-disciplinary approach and legislative powers available to the CCFANigeria. In deciding what cases to adopt, the Director will take into account all the circumstances of the case and consider:

  • cases which undermine Nigeria commercial/financial PLC in general and the constitution in particular;
  • cases where the actual or potential loss involved is high;
  • cases where actual or potential harm is significant;
  • cases where there is a very significant public interest element; and
  • new species of fraud
