The Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petition has received documents tended as evidence by the anti-graft agency, over allegations of fraudulent diversion of over N1 trillion by the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Lamorde.

At the opening session of the hearing, the petitioner, George Uboh, said that over 95 per cent of overseas seizures by the agency were also diverted, including the loot recovered from a former Governor of Bayelsa State, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha; and former Inspector-General of Police, Tafa Balogun.

The EFCC boss was not present to state his own side as the commission had written to the committee to ask to be allowed more time to gather relevant documents and given another date to appear before the committee to answer to the petition.

An official of the EFCC, who was present at the event, however, questioned the propriety of the committee, saying the petitioner should not have been allowed to present his case in the absence of the committee. (Channels TV)
