Its Director of Operations, Mr Tunde Ogunsakin, a Deputy Commissioner... of Police, is ironically enmeshed in an examination scandal at the University of Abuja (UNIABUJA).
Ogunsakin is a Law student in the school with matriculation number 05251064.
A reliable source in the university said Ogunsakin, a 400-Level student, repeatedly paid other students to write his examination papers for him.
Luck reportedly ran out on him on April 7, when one Bright Edebor, a final year student, was accosted in the examination hall while writing a course, "Equity" on behalf of Ogunsakin.
A lecturer was said to have seized Edebor and took him to the Dean of Students Affairs where he was interrogated.
He allegedly confessed that he was paid to write the exam by Ogunsakin, admitting that he had done so for the police officer in the past.
Investigation by the Dean revealed that the director has been involved in several past examination malpractices in the school, as his tight schedule as EFCC's top investigator hardly gives him the time to either study or sit for exams for many of the courses needed to bag his degree.
The source said that Ogunsakin has "perfected the art of hiring brilliant but impoverished students to write exams for him.
"Ogunsakin may have also violated the civil service rule, as he may not have received permission from his employers to attend the school.
Ogunsakin was seconded to the EFCC last year by the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Mike Okiro, before the appointment of Mrs Waziri as the Chairman.
Ogunsakin has investigated many high profile cases since assuming duty at the anti-graft agency, including the African Finance Corporation (AFC) scam, the "Africa for Obama Fund" involving the Director-General of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), Dr. Ndi Okereke-Onyiuke, among others.
The latest is the alleged AP shares scam, involving two business moguls, Mr Femi Otedola, the complainant, and Alhaji Aliko Dangote, the accused, in which Ogunsakin, leading the EFCC team, was said to have drilled the latter for about eight hours last Tuesday.

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.
