Some aggrieved members of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), have dragged the National Coordinator of the group, Otunba Gani Adams, to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), for alleged financial malpractices.
The anti-graft commission on Friday received in its Lagos office, a three-page petition signed by 26 members of the National Coordinating Council of the group.
The signatories to the petition include Rasak Arogundade, Monsuru Akande, Adesina Akinpelu, Kehinde Ogunyale, Adeola Adeagbo, Ranti Akande, Gbenga Egunlusi, Lateef Oshodi, ‘Layiwola Ogunsolu, Olusoji Folorunso, Sunday Bankole, ‘Segun Olusanya and Sunday Adebayo.
Others are Idowu Akintunde, Oyename Adebayo, Lateef Kaka, Oladipupu Musa, Musiliu Amusa, Lateef Ogungbayi, Morufu Salami, Rotimi Akinsowon, Taofik Hameed, Dauda Oyelowo, Yinka Olowoporoku, Adio Odewole and Alexander Adesina.
In the petition dated March 4, 2016, titled, “Please help retrieve our money from Gani Adams”, and addressed to the Chairman of the anti-graft agency, the NCC members accused Adams of using his position to amass questionable wealth at the expense of members of the group.
According to them, the OPC leader has turned the group to a private property such that he is the sole signatory to all the accounts of the group.
Adams was also accused of diverting $22 million which he allegedly received on behalf of the group from the late Libyan leader, Moammar Ghadaffi.
