EFCC Boss, Lamorde, Under Probe For N1tr Fraud

A Senate committee has asked the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Lamorde, to appear before it on Wednesday over allegations that he diverted over N1 trillion being proceeds from corruption recovered by the anti-graft agency

The Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions is reacting to a petition sent to the Upper House by one George Uboh, who claimed that part of the money diverted by the EFCC boss included the loot recovered from a former Governor of Bayelsa State, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, and ex-Inspector-General of Police, Tafa Balogun.

Mr Uboh, the Chief Executive Officer of Panic Alert Security Systems, a security firm, in his petition dated July 31, 2015, accused Mr Lamorde of specific instances of under-remittance and non-disclosure of proceeds of corruption recovered from criminal suspects, including Balogun and Alamieyeseigha.
