These Are The Top 7 Most Wanted Persons On EFCC Watch List

Below are the top seven most wanted persons on anti-graft agency’s watch list as compiled by TheCable News.
Tompolo
1. GOVERNMENT EKPEMUPOLO A.K.A TOMPOLO
Tompolo is a former militant leader of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND). He is wanted for conspiracy and illegal diversion of the sum of N34,000,000,000.
The former militant warlord is alleged to have mismanaged money from Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).
Two bench warrants have been issued by a federal high court sitting in Lagos for Tompolo’s arrest but thus far, the security agencies have not been able to arrest him.
According to the EFCC, Tompolo’s last known address is No 1, Chief Agbanu Street, DDPA Extension, Warri, Delta State.
2. MARIANO ALBINO
Mariano Albino is an Italian who was declared wanted in connection with a case of obtaining money under false pretence, stealing and money laundering.
According to information made available to the public by the EFCC, the amount involved in the alleged sharp practice amounts to the tune of N989, 288,400.
53-year-old Albino speaks Italian and English languages fluently. His last known address is No 9B, Ezekwuese close, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.
 
3. JERRY OGBONNA OBIKE PHILLIP
Phillip is alleged to have withdrawn a sum of N45 million that was erroneously sent to his account.
Following the alleged act, EFCC notified the public that “Phillip withdrew the sum of N45,000,000.00 that was mistakenly credited into his account in a new generation bank”.
 
“However, it was learnt that, before the money could be reversed to its rightful owner, Phillip had allegedly withdrawn the said amount.”
The money was said to have been paid into his account by the Central Bank of Nigeria. Phillip hails from Ovim in Isuikwuato local government area of Abia state.
4. FADY EL-DAHER
Fady El-Daher was declared wanted by the EFCC in March 2015. A staff of El-Alan Construction Company located at No. 9, Macgregor Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, El-Daher is wanted in connection with a case of conspiracy, obtaining money under false pretence and stealing.
Fady, a Lebanese, served as the project manager to the company’s construction site at Kofo Abayomi, Victoria Island, Lagos.
He allegedly colluded with some of the sub contractors employed by the company to inflate the cost of materials and measurement of work done on site. He was last spotted at Murtala Mohammed International Airport Ikeja Lagos on July 27.
5. ABDULRASHEED MAINA
The former chairman of Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT) was declared wanted for his alleged role in the alleged pensions biometric contracts scam.
Maina, ex-head of service Steve Oronsaye, and two others allegedly mismanaged over N2 billion pension funds. He was, on July 21, 2015, charged at a federal high court on a 24-count of procurement fraud and obtaining by false pretence.
While Oronsaye and two others were present in court during their arraingment, Maina was amiss and has since remained at large.
The INTERPOL has issued a worldwide red alert on Maina, based on a request from the EFCC.
 
6. DESMOND OSAWARU
Osawaru is wanted by EFCC for obtaining $200,000 from a client under false pretence. His unsuspecting client fell victim to a phony boat transaction and parted with the aforementioned sum.
Osawaru’s last known address is No.8. Alaka Street, Benin City, Edo state.
 
7. IBRAHIM SAMINU TURAKI
The former governor of Jigawa state is wanted in connection with a case of criminal conspiracy, stealing, money laundering and misappropriation of public funds to the tune of N36 billion.
Turaki has been on the run since his re-arraignment in 2011 on a 36-count charge at the federal high court Dutse, Jigawa state. During the last sitting on November 13, 2014, 50year-old Turaki was absent despite a subsisting warrant for his arrest.
In May 2016, agents of the EFCC stormed the Abuja home of the former senator at 16 Dennis Osadebe Street, Aso Villa.
The team of operatives who carried out the raid were unsuccessful in their attempt to apprehend the former governor, as only members of his family were found at home.
 There at least 76 persons – including politicians, former public office holders and notable high profile individuals – presently on the wanted list of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
