EFCC Arrests Former Head Of The Civil Service, Steve Oronsaye

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, last night, took into custody a former Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Mr Steve Oronsaye., over allegation of corruption and obtaining money by false pretence.

Oronsaye who is already being prosecuted by the EFCC on 24 counts of money laundering before a Federal High Court, Abuja, is alleged to have abused his position as Chairman of the Presidential Committee on Financial Action Task Force and obtained the sum of N240million from the Central Bank of Nigeria under the guise of assistance to the Committee without the knowledge of other committee members and proceeded to convert the said sum to his personal use.

A top source in the EFCC disclosed that the former top bureaucrat who had been on administrative bail over other financial crimes being probed by the agency, was re-arrested at about 4.30 pm on Tuesday.

As of press time, he was still being grilled by operatives of the Commission. “What we are doing now is simply dotting the ‘I’ and crossing the ‘t’. Investigation is almost concluded and the suspect will be charged to court any time from now, ” a source familiar with the case, told Vanguard.
