Ex-EFCC Chairman dies at 61

Ibrahim Lamorde, the former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has reportedly died in Egypt at the age of 61.

According to Premium Times, which cited close associates, Lamorde passed away on Sunday in Egypt, where he was receiving medical treatment.

This information has not yet been independently verified, as efforts to reach Lamorde’s family and EFCC spokesperson Dele Oyewale for comments were unsuccessful as of Sunday morning.

Born on December 20, 1962, Lamorde joined the Nigerian Police in 1986 and retired as a Deputy Inspector General of Police in 2021.

He served as the EFCC chairman from 2011 to 2015. Lamorde, the Commission’s third executive chairman, was appointed acting chairman on November 3, 2011, following the removal of Farida Waziri by former President Goodluck Jonathan.

He was confirmed as the substantive chairman by the Senate on February 15, 2012.

Further details will be provided as they become available.
