Ex-presidential candidate declared wanted

17 September 2015, 17:05

Abuja - A former presidential aspirant under the platform of the Nigerian Liberation Party Emmanuel Osita Okereke has been declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), The Sun reports.

The Director-General of the National Task Force to Combat Illegal Importation of Small Arms, Ammu­nition and Light Weapons (NATFORCE), was declared wanted for allegedly jumping bail.

He was arraigned on November 21, 2013 before Justice J. Y. Tukur of the FCT High Court, Apo, Abuja for allegedly forging a document of the Fed­eral Government titled: “Restricted, Federal Gov­ernment of Nigeria, National Task Force”.

He alleg­edly falsely held public offices as DG and director, FCT Command of National Task Force, through which he and Ishmael Chinyere Nwogu were said to have fraudulently obtained money for sale of em­ployment forms.

Okereke, however warned the EFCC to respect the court, which he said recently restrained the anti-graft agency from arresting him. He threatened to seek legal redress in the event that he was defamed by EFCC.
