The family of businessman, Mr Goodie Ibru, has reacted to the announcement by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), declaring him wanted over alleged “capital market fraud, money laundering and diversion of funds.”

In a statement on Thursday, the family described the EFCC’s action as scandalous, misleading and unfortunate and created the impression that Mr Ibru was on the run.
They added that the businessman had earlier responded to the agency’s invitation for an interview on July 25.
The family explained further that he was in the United Kingdom for medical treatment, but promised to honour the invitation on his return in the first week of November.
They described the announcement by the EFCC as an indication of bias into an investigation of an issue that borders primarily on family misunderstanding, which they said the anti-graft agency was fully aware of.
A publication on the anti-graft agency’s website had said Mr Ibru was declared wanted in connection with various crimes.
The EFCC said Ibru allegedly “diverted billions of Naira and assets of Ikeja Hotels Plc, owners of Sheraton Hotel, Lagos, Federal Palace Hotel and Capital Hotel and owners of Sheraton Hotel, Abuja to his personal benefits.” (Channels TV)
