RE-DEPLOYMENT OF ACTING DIRECTOR OF NIGERIAN FINANCIAL INTELLIGENCE UNIT (NFIU), MS JULIET IBEKAKU

The former acting director of the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU), Ms Juliet Ibebaku has been re-deployed to the legal directorate of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).  Ms Julliet Ibekaku who has since resumed at her new duty post had previously served in the external cooperation Unit and the Training and Research Institute (Now EFCC Academy) before her redeployment to the NFIU. Mr. Francis Usani formerly of the Legal Directorate of the Commission has been posted to head the NFIU in acting capacity. Mr. Usani is a veteran prosecutor and seasoned lawyer, having been part of the prosecution team that has prosecuted money laundering and other grand corruption cases.

The movement of the Commission’s officers is part of routine administrative activity of the Commission and is far from the drama being peddled by some section of the media alleging intimidation. The EFCC does not need Mobile Policemen to "occupy" its own premises nor does it require a riot squad to redeploy its own staff. The redeployment is therefore, part of the re-tooling and re -alignment process by the management of the Commission to ensure that the NFIU, which is an autonomous Unit domiciled in the Commission, rises up to current challenges.
The Commission wishes to assure that the NFIU will continue to discharge its duties in line with its mandate and in accordance with best practices.
