A group, the Network for National Integration, NNI, say the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, chairman, Ibrahim Lamorde is complicit in the crime Steve Oronsanya, a former head of service of the federation is being accused of. Orosanye is facing 28-count charge of money laundry, theft and corruption.
Muideen Olaniyi and Mustafa Idriss, signed a statement on the group’s behalf, detailing Lamorde’s complicity while asking he resign his position. They alleged that Lamorde, as a member of the Pension Reform Task Team, collected estacode for biometric trip he did not make and also allowances for meetings he failed to attend. The group say Lamorde can’t be the one to prosecute Oronsanya, as such amount being a prosecutor and a judge simultaneously.
“We call on Mr. Larmode, chairman of the EFCC to resign honourably or we will embark on a campaign for his sack. Larmode cannot be a prosecutor and judge in this matter given that he collected estacode as a member of the biometric team to go abroad which he did not go, money for meetings he failed to attend. We challenge him to present his international passport to show if he went with the team for oversees biometric capture of pensioners abroad. He only returned the money when the Senate Committee on Establishment began looking into the matter of pension”, the group stated.
