EFCC declares Iyiola Omisore wanted

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared a former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore a wanted man.

Relating the information on its Facebook page today, the EFCC said Omisore reportedly collected N700 million from the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki who is currently in the custody of the Federal Government.

The anti-graft agency accused Omisore of evading arrest for several months which is why he was declared 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, 000,000.00 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.”
Omisore had requested the Federal Capital Territory High Court to enforce his fundamental human rights upon receiving the invitation from the Commission to come in and explain his involvement in the case.
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 effect the arrest of the politician.”
