EFCC Re-Arrests Ex-Permanent Secretary Clement Onubuogo

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has re-arrested Dr. Clement Onubuogo, a former Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Labour and Productivity.

Operatives of the anti-graft agency picked up Onubuogo on Wednesday at the premises of the Federal High Court in Lagos.

Onubuogo was alleged to have snubbed an earlier invitation to respond to the allegation of diversion of N606m SURE-P fund under his watch.

He was in court for his trial in a separate charge filed against him by EFCC before he was re-arrested.

The former permanent secretary was earlier arraigned by the agency for not declaring some of his alleged hidden cash assets.

According to the commission, Onubuogo failed to declare N97,300,613.44, $139,575.50 and £10,121.52 found in three of his bank accounts.
