PostSubject: EFCC declares Omisore wanted over N700m arms cash deal   Tue 24 May 2016, 7:33 pm

Leading figure in the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State,
Senator Iyiola Omisore, has run into a deeper problem with the
Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over the N700 million
which the former Deputy Governor reportedly received from the
Office of the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
Omisore, according to EFCC, which has now been declared wanted,
has been unable to explain why he got the money from the NSA,
who is also standing trial for breach of public office and money
laundering in three separate courts of law in Abuja.
EFCC claimed in a statement made available to Vanguard on
Tuesday that Omisore had been evading the commission after
being served with a formal invitation to appear for questioning on
what he knew about the money.
The Spokesman for the EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, who signed
statement, said the commission had no other option than declaring
Omisire wanted so as to be able to bring him to account for the
public fund.
The statement said in part: “The Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission, EFCC, today declared a former deputy governor of
Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore wanted.
”The former Senator is wanted in connection with a case of
receiving and misappropriating the sum of over N700 million from
the Office of the National Security Adviser, between June and
November, 2014.
“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”.
“Instead of responding to the commission’s investigation Omisore
approached the Federal Capital Territory 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. The EFCC
thereafter obtained a warrant to effect the arrest of the politician,”
EFCC said.
Sources familiar with the case, said that Omisore’s name featured
on a list of 241 contractors, who got contracts from the ONSA in
2014 but did not do any appreciable job to justify the huge sums
collected by them.
Omisore, whose firm reportedly got a security job for N442.6
million, allegedly received payment shortly after the money was
paid to the company that secure the job. He was said to be a
director of the firm at the time of the payment was made to him.
When he was first requested by the EFCC to report for interrogation,
the former Senator, asked for a short time to report to the
commission only for him to approach a court for the exercise of his
fundamental rights, a development that irked the commission.
The EFCC letter of invitation signed by Abubakar Madaki on behalf
of the acting chairman of commission, reads: “The commission is
investigating an alleged case in which your name featured
prominently.
“In view of the above, you are requested to interview the
undersigned on Monday, April 11, 2016, at No.30, Harper Crescent,
Wuse Zone 7, at 10 am.
