Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared former Minister of Power and Steel OLU AGUNLOYE wanted over alleged corruption and forgery.

The Commission made the announcement in a public notice signed by its Spokesperson DELE OYEWALE, and posted on the agency’s official  Facebook and Instagram channels today.

According to the commission, the seventy-five year old AGUNLOYE, is from Akoko North  Local Government Area of Ondo State and gave his last known address as Number 20 Solel Boneh Way Bodija, Ibadan, Oyo State.

The EFCC urged anyone with useful information on his whereabouts to contact its offices in Benin, Kaduna, Ibadan, Sokoto, Maiduguri, Makurdi, Ilorin, Enugu, Kano, Lagos, Gombe, Uyo, Port Harcourt and Abuja, or through its telephone lines and email.

Meanwhile, the commission had earlier invited AGUNLOYE for questioning over his role in the six billion dollars Mambila hydropower contract.

Recall that former President, Chief OLUSEGUN OBASANJO had accused AGUNLOYE of mismanaging the power project during his tenure from 1999 to 2003 and failed to brief him on the state of the project.
