EFCC Re-Arrests Former Permanent Secretary, Onubuogo


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has re-arrested a former Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Labour and Productivity, Dr Clement Onubuogo.

Onubuogo was picked up wednesday by operatives of the commission at the premises of the Federal High Court in Lagos.

He was alleged to have shunned an earlier invitation to respond to the allegation of diversion of N606million SURE-P fund under his watch.

The former permanent secretary was in court for his trial in a separate charge filed against him by the commission before he was re-arrested.

He was earlier arraigned by the commission for not declaring some of his alleged hidden cash assets.

The anti-graft agency said Onubuogo failed to declare N97,300,613.44, $139,575.50 and £10,121.52 found in three of his bank accounts.
