EFCC may declare fugitive pension director wanted over N22bn fraud

The court had jailed the former Assistant Director for two years and asked him to refund N22.9bn.

A senior EFCC official, who expressed consternation over the development, confided in Sunday PUNCH that the commission decided to declare the convict wanted following his refusal to give himself up to either the anti-graft agency or the prisons service.

He pleaded guilty to three counts and was sentenced by Talba to two years in jail, with the option of paying a fine of N750,000.

The acting EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade, failed to react on Friday when asked about the failure of the commission to apprehend the elusive convict.
