The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, is set to declare the immediate past Special Adviser on Niger Delta Affairs to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Kingsley Kuku, wanted for allegedly refusing to honour the invitation by the commission for interrogation.
A highly placed source at the commission at the weekend told Nigerian Pilot on Sunday that the commission has already started the processes that will lead to declaring the embattled Kuku wanted.
According to the source, there are series of petitions written against the former amnesty coordinator bordering on alleged fraud, embezzlement, theft and money laundering that he needs to clarify before the operatives of the commission.
The source further added that Kuku was supposed to be questioned Tuesday last week over alleged embezzlement and fraudulent diversion of funds running into hundreds of billions of naira when he was in office.
According to the EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, Kuku has been invited by the agency for questioning and he is billed to appear before the anti graft agency on July 28 but he failed to show up.
This paper also learnt that Kuku and two others are wanted by the commission over concerns of alleged corruption and misappropriation of funds in the amnesty programme of the President Jonathan-led administration.
However, Mr. Kuku has informed the EFCC that the earliest possible date he would honour the invitation is September 30, as he is currently in the United States for medical care.
A letter by Mr. Kuku’s lawyers to the EFCC said the former presidential aide was undergoing surgery on one of his knees.
