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

The former senator is wanted in connection with a case of receiving and misappropriating over N700, 000,000.00 from the Office of the National Security Adviser, between June and November, 2014.

EFCC revealed that Omisore 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”.

Omisore had instead, approached the Federal High Court for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights.

The judge, Husseini Baba Yusuf, however ordered that Omisore should only be arrested through a due and legal process.

The EFCC thereafter obtained a warrant to effect his arrest.
