Investigators and prosecutors who may have compromised the probe and prosecution of high profile corruption cases involving public officers may be in for a rough time.

This is because the federal government has vowed to punish those found culpable, as it plans to probe previous high profile cases of corruption in the country.

This was revealed by the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr Abubakar Malami, at a news conference in Abuja, where he advised judicial officers to live above board.

He denounced claims that the federal government is flouting court orders with regard to the former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (Rtd), who is being tried for alleged money laundering and illegal possession of firearms.

Mr Malami, who assumed office officially on Thursday, also vowed to fight corruption legally and without fear or favour.

“I am prepared to carry out my constitutional duties in this regards with all the enablement that God has given me.

“The fight against corruption must be fought legally, without fear or favour, affection or ill-will and in line with international best practices,” he said, adding, “We, therefore, cannot make excuses for failure.” (Channels TV)
