The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared Iyiola Omisore, former deputy governor of Osun state, wanted.

Omisore was alleged to have collected N700 million from the office of Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser, between June and November, 2014.

According to EFCC, Omisore has been “elusive and refused to report to the commission” after invitation was extended to him on April 7, 2016 requesting him “to come and make clarification on the ongoing investigation”.

“Instead of responding to the commission’s investigation, Omisore had approached the federal capital territory high court for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights,” the EFCC said in a statement.

“Justice Husseini Baba Yusuf consequently ordered that Omisore should only be arrested through a due and legal process. The EFCC thereafter obtained a warrant to effect the arrest of the politician.”

Omisore, a former senator, lost the 2014 gubernatorial election in Osun to Rauf Aregbesola, the incumbent governor.

He ran on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
