EFCC boss asked to resign

14 September 2015, 13:16

Abuja - A group, Anti-Corruption Coalition, has advised the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Lamorde, to resign immediately for failing to appear before the Senate to answer allegations of corruption, Punch reports.

The ACC said this in a statement by its protem coordinator, Mohammed Saliu, on Sunday.

Lamorde had been accused by one George Uboh of diverting monies recovered from a convicted former Inspector General of Police, Tafa Balogun; and a former Governor of Bayelsa State, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha.
