EFCC arrests man who threatened to kill chairman

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, have arrested one Kayode Cole for issuing a death threat against the Chairman of the commission, Ola Olukoyede.

Nigeriacrime.com gathered that the suspect was arrested in the Lugbe axis of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja.

Cole, according to EFCC’s Spokesman Dele Oyewale, the suspect made the death threat through his Instagram page handle: “1billionsecretss,” while commenting on a story posted by a popular Instagram blogger, Instablog9ja on February 1, 2024.

Instablog9ja posted a story with the caption: “A religious sect is laundering money for terrorists. We traced N7 Billion fraud proceeds to another religious group- EFCC chairman.”

Reacting to the comment section of Instablog9ja, Cole said that the EFCC chairman would be dead in six months.

“He will be dead in six months. This man will be dead in six months remembered, I said it,” he added.

In the course of interrogation, the suspect claimed that he was just “chasing clout.”

He will be handed over to the appropriate authority for further investigation and prosecution.

Recall that the chairman of EFCC, Ola Olukoyede, had on January 30, 2024, at the Musa Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja, during a one-day dialogue on “Youth, Religion, and the Fight against Corruption.” said that the commission had uncovered how a religious sect in Nigeria is laundering money for terrorists.

The EFCC boss also said that another religious body was found to be protecting a money launderer after some money suspected to have been laundered was traced to the organisation’s bank account.
