No second term for EFCC boss

09 October 2015, 13:13

Abuja - Indications have emerged that the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Lamorde, will not be getting a second term in office, Punch reports.

President Muhammadu Buhari seems have ruled out a second term for the EFCC boss who was named the commission’s acting chairman by former President Goodluck Jonathan, after sacking Farida Waziri as the chairman.

His appointment was later confirmed by the Senate on February 15, 2012.

It was gathered that the decision to name another chairman for the commission at the expiration of Lamorde’s tenure was taken because of the lull in the EFCC’s activities over the years.

Lamorde is currently being investigated by the senate over alle­gations of diversion of over N1trillion from the sale of confiscated properties be­longing to convicted public officials, including a former governor of Bayelsa State, Diepreye Alamieyesiegha and a former Inspector-Gen­eral of Police, Tafa Balo­gun, among many others.
