Former Kogi State governor, Abubakar Audu, who was declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reportedly left the country for the United States of America via London.
Audu was said to have arrived his home in Potomac, Maryland on Wednesday.
The former governor was declared wanted by the EFCC on Wednesday in connection with a case of N4billion theft while he was the governor of the state between 1999 and 2003.
Audu had on December 12, 2011, through his lead counsel, Mike Ozekhome (SAN) filed the stay of proceedings motion supported by 11-paragraph Affidavit.
This was 26 clear days after the Supreme Court of Nigeria on November 16, 2011, struck out a similar application he filed on January 24, 2011.
Officials of the EFCC had stormed his home on Tuesday, December 11, at 32 Suleiman Barau Street, Aso Villa, Asokoro Abuja in a bid to arrest him but failed.
Audu reportedly owns choice properties in the US where he is believed to have traveled to.
