EFCC Fails To Arraign Ex-NIA DG, Oke, Wife

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday failed to arraign the sacked Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ambassador Ayodele Oke, and his wife, Folashade.

The anti-graft agency had on Wednesday filed four charges against the Okes before the Federal High Court in Lagos.

They were scheduled to be arraigned on Friday before Justice C.J. Aneke in connection with the sums of  $43,449,947, £27,800 and N23,218,000 (totaling N13bn) removed by the EFCC from Flat 7B Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, Lagos linked to them.

On Friday, however, the EFCC failed to produce them in court.

The EFCC prosecutor, Rotimi Oyedepo, who came to court without the defendants, asked the court registrars to reschedule the arraignment till Wednesday, February 6.

There had been online reports suggesting that Oke and his wife may have left the country.

When contacted on phone, the spokesman for the EFCC, Tony Orilade, said he was on his way to the office and would get back to PUNCH NEWSPAPER on the situation of things.

Orilade, however, noted that as of Wednesday, the EFCC had still not been able to get the Okes.
