EFCC declares former power minister, Agunloye, wanted

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared a former Minister of Power and Steel, Olu Agunloye, wanted over an alleged $ 6 billion fraud.

Agunloye, former minister of power under President Olusegun Obasanjo, was at the centre of the $6 billion Mambilla hydropower contract controversy and had been quizzed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over the affair over the years.

The commission, via its official X (formerly Twitter) platform, called on Nigerians to report Agunloye’s whereabouts to the nearest police station or notify the EFCC.

In the information shared by the EFCC, Agunloye’s image was displayed.

The EFCC message read, “Anybody with useful information as to his whereabouts should please contact the Commission in its Benin, Kaduna, Ibadan, Sokoto, Maiduguri, Mardi, Ilorin, Enugu, Kano, Lagos, Gombe, Uyo, Port Harcourt, and Abuja offices or contact 08093322644 or email info@efcc.gov.ng or the nearest police station and any other security agencies.”

In 2016, Agunloye joined the Social Democratic Party and became the party’s candidate in the state governorship election.
