REVEALED: Religious sect laundering money for terrorists in Nigeria – EFCC


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 today at the Musa Yar’Adua Centre, Abuja during a one-day dialogue on “Youth, Religion, and the Fight against Corruption,” reports The Nation.


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.”
