Dasuki Gate: EFCC Declares Omisore Wanted Over N700m Largess
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has declared former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, wanted.
Omisore is wanted for receiving and misappropriating the sum of over N700 million from the Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) between June and November, 2014.
According to Anti graft body, Omisore 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”.
EFCC stated that the former Deputy Governor instead of responding to the Commission’s invitation approached the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights.
When the case came before Justice Husseini Baba Yusuf, he ordered that Omisore should only be arrested through a due and legal process.
To effect the Senator’s arrest, the EFCC thereafter secured a warrant of arrest.
