A former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Mr. Olisa Agbakoba, wants the federal government to properly fund the prosecution of the war against corruption.

Mr. Agbakoba, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, believes the war against graft, as its being prosecuted is lacking a proper strategy.

In an exclusive interview with our judiciary correspondent, Shola Soyele, he said the government would require at least N5 billion to prosecute cases.

He said, We must have a strategy on tackling corruption, and its not just about court cases. Once that strategy is in place, then you unbundle the strategy and unpack it and make sure that it fits into whatever relevant packet.

From the judicial arm and prosecution, the government has to fund corruption cases. I expect the government to put down at least N5 billion. You just cant pay lawyers N30,000 and expect that they fight corruption cases for you.

You must fund prosecution, it is key. It is beyond the Ministry of Justice. They need outside assistance. So you must be prepared to put down the budget to fight those cases, you must strengthen the prosecutorial process.
