Ooni Of Ife To Face EFCC Over Alleged N400m Fraud And Forgery
Ooni-Elect Prince Adeyeye Ogunwusi may have a bigger hurdle to jump in his bid to be fully crowned the Ooni of Ife after a human rights group called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to prosecute him for alleged forgery.
Chairman of the Centre for Human Eights and Social Justice, Mr. Adeniyi Sulaiman, in a letter written to the Chairman of the EFCC said the allegations were weighty and they ought to be thoroughly investigated. Sulaiman said the allegation of forgery, fraudulent conversion and obtaining of N400 million against Ogunwusi and his company should not be swept under the carpet.
The group threatened to get court injunction to compel the EFCC to prosecute Ogunwusi if the commission failed to begin the prosecution after seven days of receipt of the letter.
