on

Ibrahim-LamordePresident Muhammadu Buhari has ordered a discreet investigation of the leadership of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over sundry allegations of acts incompatible with leadership of the anti-graft agency, VANGUARD is reporting.

The newspaper’s investigations revealed that the discreet probe is being coordinated by the office of the National Security Adviser and involves officials from the National Intelligence Agency and the Department of State Services.

It was learnt that the investigation commenced even before the widely publicized by Dr. George Uboh, Chief Executive Officer, Panic Alert Security Services alleging that “Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Lamorde, through various fraudulent Acts/Omissions, could not account for seized monies amounting to over one (1) Trillion Naira”.

But Mr. Lamorde has consistently denied any wrongdoing, adding that the services of a reputable audit firm has been engaged to work on all assets that have been seized and recovered by the EFCC.

“We have engaged the services of a reputable audit firm since last year to work on all assets that have been seized and recovered by the EFCC.

“We want to have a comprehensive report that will stand the test of time. I’m not only talking about 2012 to 2015 that I am in charge of affairs, I asked them to look from the day the commission was created, that is April 2003 to date, so that we have a comprehensive report we can put in public space. Any person who has issues with that can challenge it and we will look at it”, he was quoted as saying in an interview with BBC which was reproduced in EFCC Alert Magazine and made available to journalists in Abuja on Monday.

Addressing the petitioner directly, Lamorde had said “You see, people judge others by their standards. If they are entrusted with public funds, they will misuse it. So they just assume every other person can do the same. So, they look at you from their own perspective of what they may do or what they are doing. I think that is what is happening”.
