Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has declared wanted a former deputy governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore.
The EFCC said this on its official Facebook page yesterday, saying Omisore allegedly received N700million from former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd)
The anti-graft agency said Omisore had been evading arrest for several months and it thus had no choice but to declare him wanted.
The statement read: “The EFCC today, May 24, 2016, declared a former deputy governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, wanted.
“The former senator is wanted in connection with a case of receiving and misappropriating the sum of over N700, 000,000 from the Office of the National Security Adviser, between June and
November 2014.
“Omisore has been elusive and refused to report to the commission after invitation was extended to him on April 7, 2016, requesting him to come and make clarification on the ongoing investigation.”
The EFCC explained that instead of responding to the commission’s investigation, Omosore had approached the Federal Capital Territory High Court for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights.
It added: “Justice Husseini Baba Yusuf consequently ordered that Omisore should only be arrested through a due and legal process. The EFCC thereafter obtained a warrant to arrest the embattled senator,” the commission posted.
