Ayo Oke declared wanted

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.

Justice Chukwujeku Aneke of a federal high court, Lagos, had last month issued an arrest warrant on the duo, consequent upon an oral application by counsel to the Anti-graft agency, Rotimi Oyedepo.

Mr. Oke and his wife are wanted in connection with over forty three million dollars, twenty seven thousand pound and several millions of naira cash recovered by the commission 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.
