EFCC Uncovers Religious Sect Laundering Money For Terrorists 

ABUJA, Nigeria: The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ola Olukoyede, has revealed that the anti-graft agency uncovered how a religious sect is laundering money for terrorists in Nigeria.

Olukoyede made the revelation on Wednesday at the Musa Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja during a one-day dialogue on ‘Youth, Religion, and the Fight against Corruption’.

He 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.

The anti-graft boss noted that religious organisations, institutions, sects, and bodies, have been found culpable of money laundering.

Olukoyede said: “A religious sect in this country had been found to be laundering money for terrorists.”
