EFCC resumes trial of Lamorde’s accuser
THE Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) will today resume the trial of George Uboh, the accuser of the commission’s chairman, Ibrahim Lamorde, who alleged that Lamorde siphoned N1 trillion in recovered funds and assets.
The trial is taking place in an ongoing case of fraud against Uboh at the FCT High Court in Abuja before Justice S.A Aladetoyinbo.
Uboh is being accused on a three-count charge of selling government vehicles at the time he was an employee of the Police Equipment Foundation in 2007.
Uboh had accused the EFCC leadership of siphoning some of the funds it recovered from former governor of Bayelsa State, Timipre Alameiyeseigha, who is now late; and former Inspector General of Police, Tafa Balogun. He also accused the EFCC chairman of not declaring some of the assets recovered from the individuals.
Currently, the National Assembly is investigating the matter.
EFCC Spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, told The Guardian on telephone that Uboh’s trial, “is an on-going case”
