The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared former Managing Director of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF), Mrs Ngozi Juliet Olejeme, wanted.
A statement issued by the anti-graft agency on Wednesday said Mrs Olojeme is wanted in a case of criminal conspiracy, abuse of oﬃce, diversion of public funds and money laundering.
It was alleged that the woman, along with Mr Umar Munir Abubakar, the former Managing Director of NSITF, mismanaged and diverted well over N69 billion government funds into their personal accounts through the award of suspicious and bogus contracts to proxy companies.
According to the anti-money laundering agency, efforts to make Mrs Olejeme explain her role in the alleged crime have proved abortive as she “has refused to honour repeated invitations from the commission.”
In view of this, the EFCC has “hereby notified that Dr (Mrs) Ngozi Juliet Olejeme, whose photograph appears below, is wanted.”
The statement said, “The fair-skinned suspect hails from Asaba, Oshimili South LGA of Delta State and speaks English and Igbo languages ﬂuently.
“Her last known address is No 14 J.F. Kennedy Street, Asokoro, Abuja.
“Anybody having useful information as to her whereabouts should contact the Commission in its Enugu, Kano, Lagos, Gombe, Port Harcourt, Ibadan, Maidugri offices.
“If you have information, contact our oﬃces or through these numbers: 0809 3322 644 (0809 EFCC NIG). Or: firstname.lastname@example.org.”
