Omisore Challenge EFCC: Bring Your Findings To Court

Omisore Challenge  EFCC: Bring Your Findings To Court Otunba Iyiola Omisore

A former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Otunba Iyiola Omisore, yesterday urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to bring all the findings against him on alleged receipt of N1.3billion to the court.

He said he did not collect money from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) and he never had any dealings with a former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.).

Omisore, in a chat with newsment, accused the EFCC of alleged attempt to blackmail the opposition.

He said: “The EFCC won’t stop at any height to blackmail the opposition. My AIT programme has attracted another falsehood to harass me.

“Only yesterday morning, I accused the EFCC of dodging summons. I did not collect any money from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA). I have not had any dealings with the NSA

“Last time, it was N700million today N1.3billion. Nigerians should be expecting higher multipliers in future. There was no such money in my account.

“Let the EFCC bring all findings to the court instead of media hype. They have become APC harassment agency. No wonder, UK DFID withdrew their assistance.”

Omisore insisted that he did not get any cash from ONSA for his failed governorship contest.

He added: “My election was funded from my resources and donations.”

Asked why he has not appeared before the EFCC, he said it was because he has filed a case in court and the fact that the EFCC allegedly prejudged him.

He said: “I accused the EFCC of dodging court service on AIT Live programme yesterday.”

The EFCC had uncovered payment of N1.310billion to three firms said to be linked with Omisore.

The cash was part of the N4.74billion which a former Minister of Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro, hauled to Governor Ayodele Fayose in a chartered plane on June 12, 2014.

The firms are Fimex Gilt Limited, Metropolitan Consortium and Sawanara.

The companies’ accounts in which the N1.310billion was paid into allegedly belong to Omisore, according to sources close to the investigation.

According to a report by the EFCC, the N1.310billion traced to Omisore and the three companies was remitted as follows: Fimex Gilt Limited(N160m)-8/8/2014in UBA; Metropolitan Consortium(N350m)—9/7/14 in First Bank; Sawanara(N300m)—1/8/14 in First Bank and Metropolitan Consortium(N350m)-1/8/14 in First Bank.
