EFCC declares ex-minister, Olu Agunloye wanted

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared former Minister of Power and Steel Olu Agunloye wanted over alleged corruption and forgery.

The Commission announced this in a public notice signed by its spokesperson, Dele Oyewale, and posted on the agency’s official Facebook and Instagram channels, on Wednesday.

“The public is hereby notified that Dr Olu Agunloye, whose photograph appears above, is wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in an alleged case of corruption and forgery.

“Dr. Olu Agunloye is wanted by the EFCC. If you know his whereabouts, please don’t hesitate to inform the EFCC or the nearest police station,” it stated.

According to the commission, Agunloye, aged 75, is from Akoko North Local Government Area of Ondo State.

It also gave his last known address as No. 20 Solel Boneh Way, Bodija, Ibadan, Oyo State.

The EFCC urged anyone with useful information on his whereabouts to contact its offices in Benin, Kaduna, Ibadan, Sokoto, Maiduguri, Makurdi, Ilorin, Enugu, Kano, Lagos, Gombe, Uyo, Port Harcourt, and Abuja, or through its telephone lines and email.

The Commission had earlier invited Dr. Agunloye for questioning over his role in the six billion-dollar Mambila hydropower contract.

Recall that former President Olusegun Obasanjo accused Agunloye of mismanaging the power project during his tenure from 1999 to 2003 and failed to brief him on the state of the project.

Agunloye, however, denied the allegations, stressing that the nature of the initial contract for the project was awarded as a build, Operate and transfer contract in May 2003 under his watch.
