The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says it has uncovered a religious organisation laundering money for terrorists wreaking havocs in the country.
The chairman of the anti-graft agency, Ola Olukoyede, made this revelation during a one-day dialogue in Abuja, on Wednesday.
Speaking at a programme with the theme: “Youth, Religion, and the Fight against Corruption”, Olukoyede said the religious body was found culpable while protecting a money launderer after some money suspected to have been laundered was traced to the organisation’s bank account.
“A religious sect in this country had been found to be laundering money for terrorists. We were able to trace some laundered money to a religious organisation.”
“When we approached the religious organisation about it and we were carrying out our investigation, we got a restraining order stopping us from carrying out our investigation,” the EFCC boss said.
