Tension in EFCC over Tunde Ogunsakin's removal (10/05/2009)
Tension in EFCC over Tunde Ogunsakin's removal
Ogunsakin, a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), was removed last week Tuesday and redeployed to the Force Headquarters following allegations that he contracted a student to sit for an examination on his behalf at the Law faculty of the University of Abuja, where he is currently undergoing a programme.
Reports had further alleged that Ogunsakin paid the student a hefty sum of N500,000 to write the examination for him in proxy, just as he was said to be enjoying the support of a Deputy Dean of Faculty, whom he bought an expensive Toyota car to curry his favour when necessary.
Interestingly, when the scandal blew open, the EFCC moved swiftly to investigate the incident even when the authorities of the University of Abuja were yet to commence inquiry on the matter. During its investigation, the EFCC operatives reportedly attempted to take possession of Ogunsakin's unmarked script for the Equity course, an examination he wrote on April 29, 2009, three weeks after the scandal broke.
The operatives also took the bank account of the student, who allegedly wrote the examination for the erstwhile EFCC boss. However, the confessional statement of Bright Edobor, the 500-level Law student at the centre of the alleged examination scam, has introduced a new twist into the saga, claiming that he had been under pressure by some EFCC officials with a promise of a soft-landing and other juicy offers if only he could testify to implicate Ogunsakin.
Similarly, Kwara State-born Yinka Afolayan, a 400-level student of the Department of Public and International Law, who admitted being a close friend to Ogunsakin, said he takes full responsibility for the incident, which he said, resulted in his bid to assist a friend without his consent. Edobor said he is therefore at a loss as to why some top officials of the EFCC want him to nail Ogunsakin, with a promise of adequate security protection as well as sponsorship to a school of his choice outside the shores of the country.
In a confessional statement dated April 30, 2009, Edobor denied either meeting Ogunsakin or being contracted by him to sit for an examination.
"They went further promising to sponsor my schooling abroad if I am afraid that their boss (Ogunsakin) will deal with me if I lie against him. "Some others spoke about helping me with finances, but I out-rightly refused to see any of them. I told some of them that my conscience will not permit such an act of false witness…As a result of the pressure I was getting from the people who claimed to be EFCC official, I sensed that they were trying to use me to blackmail him [Ogunsakin].
"It is important to note that it was a test I wrote for the said Tunde Ogunsakin and not examination though, without his consent, and I have decided to make this fact public because of the attitude of the EFCC officials who came to interrogate me on April 29, 2009, as they tried to make me say that DCP Tunde sent me, but I couldn't do that because my conscience could not let me".
Evidently, Bright's revelation suggested that all had not been well at the top hierarchy of the EFCC since the present leadership assumed office, and Ogunsakin may have fallen victim of high-tech conspiracy and power-play, which eventually saw him being eased out last week. In fact, Sunday Sun findings revealed that that the removal of Ogunsakin was the hallmark of a sustained game of distrust, intrigues and suspicion between him and the Commission's chairman, Mrs. Farida Waziri.
Unwilling to bear the degrading treatment, Sunday Sun gathered that Ogunsakin had once confronted her on the issue, and she promised to reverse the situation. Sources close to the EFCC said she never did.
Besides operational differences, Sunday Sun further gathered Ogunsakin may have fallen out of favour with his boss following his show of displeasure on her manner of handling some sensitive investigations, especially those involving some ex-governors, top politicians and some members of the National Assembly. Again, her decision to contract the services of security consultants some of whom engaged in blackmailing in the name of the EFCC, was also said to be a source of ripples at the Commission.
Ironically, Sunday Sun gathered that Ogunsakin had, indeed, written a letter of resignation which he was yet to present to President Umaru Yar'Adua, before his sudden removal.

The report said EFCC was notified of the pending suit on Tuesday in a letter addressed to Mr. Tunde Ogunsakin, EFCC's Director of Operations requesting the commission to stay action.

But because of Yar'Adua's interest in the scam, the EFCC's investigative team, headed by Tunde Ogunsaki, an Assistant Commissioner of Police and the Head of Operations of the EFCC submitted its report directly to the presidency, and as well, keeping its findings away from the House and its leadership, and from all those who may want to influence its rejig. The EFCC's report indicted the Speaker for negligence and failure to provide a decent and purposeful leadership by failing to expose the fraud in the car purchase when it became even evident to him that there was a rip-off. Strangely, Bankole's testimony before his EFCC interrogators provided the weapon with which the commission effectively nailed him. Testifying before the EFCC, the Speaker reportedly owned up to having been approached with a portion of the filty-lucre from the car purchase rip-off, but that he refused. He, however, was hard put to explain why he did not expose the fraud or at least move against it, when it was manifest to him that there was an under-hand game.

The state Police Commissioner, Mr Tunde Ogunsakin, told newsmen, yesterday, at the Police headquarters in Port Harcourt that the girl allegedly attended a party organised in the area, adding that she took a glass of strong drink offered her by one of the rapists which made her pass out before she was allegedly raped by 15 men.
He said: “The victim reported that she attended a party at Ogbuga Street in Ogbunabali, Port Harcourt organised by one Tina.
“While at the party, she was given a glass of strong drink by Tambari Dumlesi. That was the last memory she had before she was raped by 15 men. She woke up to find herself in torn boxers and with swollen privates.
However, the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Tunde Ogunsakin, said there was no bomb in the laptop bag. Ogunsakin, who spoke through his Personal Assistant, Mr. Tunji Wusu, said the bag contained a laptop suspected to have been stolen by the unidentified man that dropped it by the road side.
