Mallam Nuhu Ribadu

Nigeria’s office of the International Police (INTERPOL), has formally notified security and immigration agencies that Nuhu Ribadu, the former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has been removed from its security watch list, following the withdrawal of the charges against him by the Nigerian government.

The notification was signed by its deputy commissioner of police, Nwodibo Ekechukwu, and addressed to the Nigerian Intelligence Agency, the Nigerian Immigration Service and the Department of State Services. It directed that the notice be brought to the attention of the officers in the named agencies.

“I refer to the watch-listing of the above named person watch-listed for some specific acts. The charges against him have been withdrawn. The watch-listing has accordingly been cancelled,” Mr Ekechukwu, in the notice, titled ‘Re-Watchlisting: Mallam Nuhu Ribadu (M)’, said.

Mr. Ribadu, who was removed from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) which he headed from 2003 to 2007, under controversial circumstances, escaped from the country and was subsequently declared wanted by the Nigeria police on November 20, 2009, after being accused of not declaring his assets as the chairman of the ant-graft agency
