EFCC probes Buhari’s aide Orelope-Adefulire for money laundering
Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire, the senior special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), is currently facing a probe.
DailyTrust is reporting that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is looking into offences of abuse of office, diversion of fund, and money laundering against the former deputy governor of Lagos, Adefulire.
An EFCC letter reportedly signed by its Lagos Zonal Commander, Ahmed Ghali, har asked Orelope-Adefulire to furnish the commission with some documents in order to enable it conclude its investigations.
The report links Orelope-Adefulire Adefulire’s current ordeal to a demand by an international anti-corruption advocacy group for a probe.
The group is said to have claimed that the SDG office paid some contractors twice for a single project, using two payment platforms – GIFMIS and Remita platforms.
