EFCC Declares Ex-NIA DG Ayodele Oke, Wife Wanted For Fraud Charges


Former Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ambassador Ayodele Oke and his wife, Folasade, have been declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after they failed to answer for fraud charges filed against them.


Justice Chukwujeku Aneke of a Federal High Court, in Lagos, had on February 7, 2019, issued an arrest warrant for them, consequent upon an oral application by counsel for the EFCC, Rotimi Oyedepo.

Oke and his wife are wanted in connection with the $43,449,947, £27,800 and N23,218,000 cash recovered by the EFCC from an apartment at Osborne Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, in April 2017.

They are facing a four-count charge bordering on money laundering offence to the tune of N13 billion.
