EFCC Declares Omisore Wanted

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared the former deputy governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, wanted for alleged misappropriation of funds.
This was disclosed on Tuesday in a statement by the Head, Media and Publicity, EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren.

According to him, Omisore is wanted in connection with a case of receiving and misappropriating the sum of over N700, 000,000.00 from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) between June and November, 2014.

Uwujaren stated that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain has been elusive and refused to report to the commission after invitation was extended to him on April 7, 2016 requesting him to come and make clarification on the ongoing investigation.

Instead of responding to the commission’s investigation, he said, Omosore had approached the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights.

“Justice Husseini Baba Yusuf consequently ordered that Omisore should only be arrested through a due and legal process,” he said.

According to him, the EFCC had thereafter obtained a warrant to effect the arrest of the politician.
