Metro Akpabio, CJN, Okonjo-Iweala, 21 Other High-profile Persons Under EFCC Probe [SEE NAMES]



About 100 influential personalities are under probes by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC in the country.

The high-profile individuals who are reportedly being probed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) include former governors, ex- ministers, justices and an ex-first lady.

An EFCC source told PUNCH that the list includes not less 100 high-ranking public officials and persons who served in the Goodluck Jonathan administration.

As reported, the list have been sent to Abubakar Malami, the attorney general of the federation and minister of justice, by the anti-graft agency.

The investigations on the high profile persons were said to have been instigated by petitions, whistle blowers and through intelligence gathering.

Here is the full list of 24 high profile individuals:

1. Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti

2. Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi

3. Idris Wada, former governor of Kogi state

4. Godswill Akpabio, former governor of Akwa Ibom state

5. Jonah Jang, former governor of Plateau

6. Ali Modu Sherriff, former governor of Borno state

7. Lucky Igbinedion, former governor of Edo state

8. Patience Jonathan, wife of former president Goodluck Jonathan

9. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former minister of finance

10. Kayode Fayemi, minister of solid minerals development


11. Diezani Alison-Madueke, former minister of petroleum

12. Mohammed Adoke, former attorney general of the federation

president on media and publicity

18. Doyin Okupe, former senior special assistant to the president on public affairs

19. Abdullahi Dikko, former comptroller-general of Customs

20. Walter Onnoghen, chief justice of Nigeria

21. Uche Secondus, former acting chairman of the PDP

22. Bello Fadile, a retired colonel who served under Sambo Dasuki, former NSA

23. Abdul Kafarati, a justice

24. Mohammed Tsamiya, a retired justice


I am not surprised if the list of “corrupt” individuals was leaked to the public because Nigeria’s political landscape is filled with intrigues and drama


A cursory look at the names of the High-Profile individuals on this list reveals a good number of them served under the previous administration and this is something of interest.


How did EFCC allow the list to be exposed? How did Punch intercept the list in question? What is the authenticity of this list? This country!
