The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared a former Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayodele Oke, and his wife, Folasade, wanted after they failed to answer for fraud charges filed against them.
Justice Chukwujeku Aneke of a Federal High Court Lagos had on February 7, 2019, issued an arrest warrant on them, consequent upon an oral application by counsel for the EFCC, Rotimi Oyedepo.
Mr Oke and his wife are wanted in connection with the forty-three million dollars, twenty-seven thousand pounds and twenty-three million naira cash recovered by the EFCC from an apartment at Osborne Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, in April 2017.
They are facing a four-count charge bordering on money laundering offence to the tune of thirteen billion naira. Report gathered that Oke and his wife had travelled out of the country for medical treatment in late January shortly before they were to be arraigned in court.
