Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC spokesman in a statement on Wednesday confirmed the invitation.
EFCC said other suspects fingered in the course of investigation concerning the discovery had also being summoned.
“In furtherance of its investigative activities to unravel the circumstances surrounding the $43.45 million cash recovered by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in Lagos sometime in April 2017, the commission has invited former director general of the National Intelligence Agency, Ambassador Ayodele Oke and his wife, Folashade Oke,” the statement read.
“Mrs. Oke had refused to honour previous invitations by the Commission which resumed its investigation into the matter, following the federal government’s decision to relieve Mr. Oke of his position as DG.
“Beside the couple, other suspects are equally being invited to determine their culpability or otherwise in the humongous cash, in foreign currencies and naira notes, stashed in a residential building at Osborne road Ikoyi, Lagos.”
