A former Chairman of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund, Ngozi Olojeme, has for the second time evaded the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and fled the country, the EFCC has said.
Olojeme, who was the Deputy Chairman, Finance Committee of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation in the 2015 election, had been under probe for allegedly mismanaging over N62bn belonging to the NSITF.
However, she fled to South Africa where she remained for nearly two years.
After much pressure, Olojeme returned in December 2017 and was detained by the EFCC.
The commission subsequently seized several houses from her including a mansion in Maitama and was supposed to arraign her in court but never did.
Responding to question on why Olojeme had not yet been arraigned, the acting Chairman of the EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, said she had fled the country again.
The acting EFCC boss said Olojeme seemed to have more than one passport and was able to flee the country without the knowledge of the commission.
Magu said, “The woman is no longer in the country. She escaped because she had multiple passports. I think she has another citizenship. Olojeme escaped but we are on the case. We are working on it.”
