The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had declared a former deputy governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore wanted.

EFCC said Omisore who was the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the last election in Osun state,  is wanted in connection with an allegation that he received and misappropriated  the sum of over N700, 000,000.00 from the Office of the National Security Adviser, between June and November, 2014.

According to EFCC statement released on Tuesday,  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”.

It said instead of responding to the Commission’s summon, Omisore had approached the Federal Capital Territory High Court for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights.

“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,” the statement read in part.
