EFCC trails Adamu, as Nnamani escapes detention


Former governor of Enugu State, Dr. Chimaroke Nnamani, may have beaten eagle-eyed operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] in a game of hide and seek, as he allegedly disappeared late Thursday from the commissionís operational base in Abuja.

Former governor of Enugu State, Dr. Chimaroke Nnamani, may have beaten eagle-eyed operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] in a game of hide and seek, as he allegedly disappeared late Thursday from the commissionís operational base in Abuja.

Dependable sources said Nnamani had indeed, voluntarily honoured an invitation to the EFCC office on Thursday, but left the premises un-noticed and without trace when he suspected that two former governors who were appearing before the commission for the second time may not regain their freedom on the same day.

Although it could not be confirmed if he had been quizzed before allegedly sneaking out of the premises, authoritative sources told Saturday Sun at the weekend, that EFCC operatives have begun a manhunt for the ex- governor, amidst conflicting reports that he may have gone outside the shores of the country.

ďIt is amazing that the man just disappeared when he noticed that two other colleagues of hissx who also reported to the office on their own may be detained. As at now, we donít know his whereabouts. So, we are seriously looking for him,Ē said a source close to the commission. Besides Nnamani, the EFCC is also said to be on the trail of former governor of Nasarawa State, Alhaji Abdulahi Adamu, over an Independent Power Station project for which almost half of the cost amounting to N250million was allegedly paid to the contractor without evidence of performance, and sundry other allegations of financial misappropriation.

Adamu is, however, believed to have jetted out to London, a few days after the EFCC started inviting some of his former key officials and contractors for questioning. It was further gathered that concerted efforts by a crack team of EFCC operatives to track him down in the past one week had not yielded positive result. EFCC spokesman, Osita Nwaja, could not be reached for comments on the issue, but a top official who pleaded anonymity confirmed the development.
