EFCC declares Goodie Ibru wanted

13 October 2016, 06:26

Abuja - Goodie Ibru, one of the popular Ibru brothers, has been declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

In a  notice issued today, EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, said Goodie, 74 years old,  is wanted in connection with money laundering, conspiracy, theft, capital market fraud and diversion of funds.

Ibru’s offence emanated from his chairmanship of Ikeja Hotels, owners of Sheraton Hotel in Abuja and Lagos, Capital Hotel and Federal Palace Hotel.

The ownership of the company has been a subject of dispute between Maiden Ibru, publisher of The Guardian newspaper and Goodie Ibru.

Maiden’s late husband, Alex Ibru was a co-director of the  company. But when he died, a struggle began for the control of the company.

The EFCC in its notice on its website said:“The public is hereby notified that Goodie Minabo Ibru is wanted by the EFCC in connection with a case of conspiracy, capital market fraud, stealing, diversion of funds and money laundering.

“He diverted billions of Naira and assets of Ikeja Hotels Plc, owners of Sheraton Hotel, Lagos; Federal Palace Hotel and Capital Hotel; owners of Sheraton Hotel Abuja to his personal benefit.

“Anybody having useful information as to his whereabouts should contact the commission through any of its offices located at Abuja, Kano, Gombe, Lagos, Ibadan, Maiduguri and Port Harcourt.”

The statement was signed by Wilson Uwujaren, the anti-graft agency’s head of media.
