The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday, October 30, 2012 arraigned five suspects before a Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos, on a four count charge bordering on conspiracy to store one hundred and eighty five( 185) Metric Tons of automotive gas oil, (also called diesel) without appropriate license.
The suspects: Captain Odeghe Andrew, Engineer Ebinum Alex, Jelili Lateef (still at large), Sunday Buluku (still at large) and Monday Osasuwa (still at large) were arraigned before Justice James Tsoho.
The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has been drawn to an article by Sonala Olumhense entitled, EFCC: From Hope to Hogwash, which was published online by Saharareporters on Sunday October, 28, 2011. Olumhense in the ill-tempered piece appeared cross with the EFCC under the leadership of Ibrahim Lamorde for the singular (fallacious) reason that it failed to submit its Annual Report to the National Assembly by September 30, 2012 as demanded by law. This supposed failure, in Olumhense's estimation, is evidence that Lamorde and the system which he runs is fraud.
