‘EFCC did not clear NABDA D-G, Ogbadu’

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday said it has not cleared the Director General (DG) of the National Biotechnology Development Agency (NABDA) Professor Lucy Jumeyi Ogbadu of criminal impropriety.

The EFCC dissociated itself from recent reports in sections of the media that the NABDA DG has been cleared of allegation of criminal impropriety, a statement by EFCC spokesman Wilson Uwujaren said on Monday.

He said it is against the code of professional practice for the EFCC to issue clearance letters to either individuals or organizations investigated by the agency.

He explained that, “The letter from the Secretary to the Commission Mr. Ageboyega Aremo, to the Minister of Science and Technology, which is being misconstrued as clearance for the D-G, did not exonerate her of criminal indictment.”

He said, “For the avoidance of doubt, a prima facie case of money laundering has been established against Prof. Ogbadu with a 49-count charge already filed against her and 9 others, awaiting assignment.”

He added, “Members of the public, including the Minister of Science and Technology, are therefore enjoined to disregard reports of the purported clearance of the suspect by the EFCC.”
