Former NIA boss and wife declared wanted by EFCC

The Former Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ambassador Ayodele Oke, and his wife, Folasade, have been declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly failing to respond to the fraud charges filed against them.

Backstory: An arrest warrant for the couple had been issued by Justice Chukwujeku Aneke of a Federal High Court in Lagos on February 7, 2019, following an oral application by counsel to the anti-graft agency, Rotimi Oyedepo.

Oke and his wife are wanted in connection with cash recovered by the EFCC from an apartment at Osborne Road, Ikoyi, Lagos in April 2017. They are facing a four-count charge relating to money laundering to the tune of N13 billion.
