The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) today July 17, 2013 arraigned Bashir Murtala and Circular Trust Bureau de Change Limited before Justice Darious H. Kobo of the Kaduna State High Court on one count charge that borders on stealing and criminal breach of trust.
Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde will on Wednesday July 17 appear before the House of Representatives Committee on Drugs, Narcotics and Financial Crimes which is conducting a public hearing to determine the status of assets seized or recovered by the EFCC since inception. Though Lamorde was scheduled to appear before the committee today, he was unable to do so due to some prior commitment. He however sent a letter of apology to the Committee. The letter was delivered by a team of top EFCC management led by the Director of Finance and Accounts, Mr. Bukar Abba. He told the Committee that Lamorde travelled to Lagos for an earlier scheduled appointment and therefore pleaded with the Committee to allow him appear at another date.
