PDP Senate Divided Over Petition To Probe EFCC Boss Lamorde

Bukola-Saraki-OnoBello Senate President Bukola Saraki 

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senate Caucus is divided over a petition being promoted by one of its senators, seeking to probe the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde, over allegations of diversion of at least N1 trillion seized from corrupt and convicted persons.

According to THEWILL, a notorious first term senator, Peter Nwaoboshi (PDP, Delta North), an ally of Senate President Bukola Saraki, whose wife, Toyin, is under investigation by the anti-graft agency for allegedly using her bank accounts to launder billions of naira of Kwara State government funds while Saraki served as Governor, is the arrowhead of the probe.

Senator Saraki is covertly behind the probe to get back at Lamorde, who approved the interrogation of Mrs. Saraki.

Curiously, the bid to probe Lamorde using the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions did not follow due process, according to some senators opposed to the bid. They said the petition was not discussed on the floor of the Senate and ought to have been sent directly to the Senate President and not to a freshman senator with zero legislative record like Nwaoboshi, who is also notoriously corrupt.

  1. As the country main economic and financial crimes commission, I think everybody should be able to face the wrath of the law if found guilty of any corrupt charges. This is a nigerian law enforcement agency that investigates financial crimes such as advance fee fraud and money laundering so if any body in these same circle is been found guilty of any dubious act that person should be ready to face the law.

    Taking madam Toyin Saraki sentimental invitations by these agency as a perfect example which many see as being engineered by some political stratagems.

    If the chairman of the EFCC is found guilty of any corrupt charges, he should face the wrath of the law squarely.

    We need a better Nigeria.
