A Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja High Court has issued a warrant for the arrest of Mohammed Ataba Sani-Omolori, the immediate past Clerk of the National Assembly.
The judge, Justice Suleiman Belgore issued the order yesterday, July 27, following an ex parte application filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) seeking an order of the court for Omolori’s arrest.
In the application, marked M/8728/2020, filed before the court, the EFCC claimed that Omolori had ignored its invitation to report to the commission’s office to answer questions regarding a petition on his alleged mismanagement of funds.
The EFCC said it is investigating an allegation on the diversion of 14 Toyota Hilux vehicles and 13 Peugeot 508 vehicles valued at over N400 million.
According to the commission, in the course of the investigation, Adamu Mohammed Fika, secretary of the National Assembly Commission, Oluseye Ajakaye and others were invited to its office.
