The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has 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, 000,000 from the Office of the National Security Adviser, between June and November, 2014.
According to the anti graft agency, 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 however said instead of responding to the Commission’s investigation Omosore had 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.
In line with the Judge’s order, EFCC obtained a warrant to effect the arrest of the politician.
