The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] seems to have finally awakened to its responsibility as Ambassador Usman Sarki was seen leaving the EFCC

It is self-evident that the EFCC woke from their slumber on realisation that the United States FBI, Justice Department, state department, and others have directly started investigations on the case.
In an earlier report titled “Lamorde Accused of Negligence; Persons with Disabilities petition Buhari for his sack”, Elombah.com had published how sloppy the EFCC were in investigating the fraud case involving Ambassador Usman Sarki and Alhaji Abdulrauf Olarenwaju Iliasu.
An organisation, Equal Rights for Persons with Disabilities International, Inc. [ERPDI], speaking through its President, Chief Eric Ndubueze Ufom, had severally petitioned various offices and individuals alerting them of alleged fraud involving Alhaji Abdulrauf Olarenwaju Iliasu on “poor and helpless Nigerians with disabilities as his victims.”
The EFCC officer who interrogated Ambassador Sarki as gathered by Elombah.com was Aminudeen Mohammad, head Bank Fraud Investigation Unit.
Offices and individuals petitioned include EFCC, President Muhammadu Buhari, Secretary of State to the United State, John Kerry, United States Attorney General’s Office and United States Institute of Peace.

Ambassador Sarki was accused by Persons with Disabilities International of “knowingly or deliberately and intelligently conspiring with Alhaji Abdulrauf Olarenwaju Iliasu to engage into corruption and defrauding Innocent Nigerian Investors of more than 4 billion Naira.”
Elombah.com gathered that Ambassador Sarki was ordered to appear before the EFCC on September 8, 2015. However, in order to avert the popularity that might follow the invitation, he went to the EFCC earlier.
Incidentally, his accusers, some of the Nigerians Investors defrauded were at the EFCC Office to file official complaint about Alhaji Iliasu’s continued fraudulent acts, after being released on bail by the EFCC and promptly invited journalists.
During interrogation, Ambassador Usman Sarki informed the EFCC that he visited their office earlier than September 8, 2015, because he will be busy preparing for the UN General Assembly Meeting and President Buhari’s first visit to the assembly, which will take place at the UN Headquarters New York, from September 24-27, 2015.
It could be recalled that his accused accomplice, Alhaji Abdulrauf Iliasu was earlier sent packing from him Aso Rock residence and subsequently arrested by the EFCC but was granted bail while the case lingers in court.
Speaking about the upcoming UN Assembly, President of Persons with Disabilities International, Chief Eric Ufom condemned the fact that Ambassador Sarki will be in the team of Nigerians that will welcome President Buhari to the US.
He stated: “It is sad that this same known and recognized Nigerians Diplomat, who knowingly or deliberately and intelligently conspired with Alhaji Iliasu to commit grievous diplomatic rape and blunder that brought huge embarrassment and shame to Nigeria, is the same person that will be champion and receiving, President Buhari, whose main mission is to ‘Fight Against Corruption’.
“It is sad and very unfortunate that this same Ambassador Usman Sarki that knowingly or deliberately and intelligently conspired with Alhaji Iliasu to engage into corrupt and fraudulent acts, with the names of poor and helpless, more than 25.5 Million, long-neglected or ignored Nigerians with Disabilities, continued to represent Nigeria at this very important United Nations.”
Chief Ufom, therefore, expressed strong wish that President Buhari and his advisers should order Ambassador Usman Sarki’s immediate recall back to Nigeria for more questioning.

Nigerians With Disabilities in Diaspora Pleads with President Buhari for the Immediate Resignation of the EFCC Boss Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde Due to His Deliberate Failure to Charge and Prosecute Alhaji Abdul-Rauf Olarenwaju and Ambassador Usman Sarki’s For Corruptions and Fraud
(WASHINGTON-DC: JULY 23, 2015) – Today, the Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari his delegation ends 3 days official visit to Washington, DC and leaves the United States for Nigeria.
While speaking at the recently concluded, United States Institute of Peace, organized conversation, on Wednesday, July 22, 2015, President Muhammadu Buhari had strongly emphasized that, “The fight against corruption is a full time job that the Federal Government will carry with sustained resolve. I have always maintained zero tolerance for corruption. I am even more committed to fighting this number one enemy decisively because I am convinced beyond any shadow of a doubt that the much needed impetus for our country’s survival is held back by corruption. I will not allow this to continue.”
For decades, Nigeria’s endemic corruptions became an incurable cancer in the Nigerian society. This, has been successfully, passed on from one Nigerian Generation, to another with impunity and without fear of being charged or prosecuted, by the EFCC and other law enforcement agencies; and which today, President Buhari has truly, declared fully time war against corruption.
“The government will plug the leakages that fuel corruption in Nigeria,” continued President Buhari.
It is very unfortunate that, Nigerians in a very high government, Business, Banking and other positions, who Nigerians trusted, were the actual people, who unprofessionally, unethically and immorally, has been directly or indirectly, involved in perfecting and legalizing, corruption in Nigeria. This made it harder and almost impossible for Nigeria to successfully, monitor and combat those endemic corruptions being committed by those in power, whose duties are to stop it.
H.E. Ambassador Usman Sarki, Deputy Permanent Representative, Permanent Mission of Nigeria to the United Nations, who for decades, has been a career diplomat, unprofessionally, undiplomatically, unethically and immorally, knowingly or deliberately and intelligently conspired with Alhaji Abdul-Rauf Olarenwaju Iliasu, and used the Office of the Permanent Mission of Nigeria to the United Nations Headquarters New York, names of Nigerians with Disabilities, United Nations, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Developments, Head of civil service of the Federation, Offices of the Special Advisers to the Former President Jonathan on Ethics and Values, to engage in corrupt practices.
H.E. Ambassador Prof. U. Joy Ogwu, Permanent Representative, Permanent Mission of Nigeria to the United Nations, advices Nigerians with Disabilities Living in the United States and their DPOs, Equal Rights for Persons with Disabilities International, Inc, and the Joint National Association of Persons with Disabilities of Nigeria in the Diaspora, USA, to always come and register any of their inventions or programs or projects for Nigeria, at the Permanent Mission of Nigeria to the United States New York before going to Nigeria to execute it.
On October, 2012, and thereafter, Nigerians with Disabilities Living in the United and their DPOs, officially presented to President Goodluck Jonathan and his administration, through the Permanent Mission of Nigeria to the United Nations, represented by Ambassador Usman Sarki, program to establish, Disability-Inclusive Community-Bases Institute of Rehabilitation Centers for independence Living, Post-Polio Clinic and wellness through the 6 Geographical Zones of Nigeria.
Ambassador Usman Sarki, recruited Alhaji Abdulrauf Olarenwaju Iliasu through his Brother Alhaji Shetima, to take charge of representing him in establishing and executing our program or project mentioned above, Emphasis added to criminal act of, “Theft of Intellectual Property.”
On July 17, 2013, during the 5th Session of the UN Conference of State Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, H.E. Ambassador Usman Sarki, who is the Deputy Permanent Representative, Permanent Mission of Nigeria to the United Nations, while representing the Federal Republic of Nigeria at this UN General Assembly, used that forum to jump start his unprofessional, undiplomatic, unethical and immoral intent to fraudulently use the names of Nigerians with Disabilities, in conspiracy with Alhaji Abdulrauf Olarenwaju Iliasu, to engage into corruptions, where he stated;
“In order to make life meaningful for Nigerians living with disabilities, the Government has approved the construction of a National Rehabilitation Institute and Resource Centre. When Completed, the Centre is expected to become a hub for the West-African Region in the area of research pertaining to the rehabilitation of persons with disabilities.”
Ambassador Sarki, who was fully aware that there was no such approval made by the Federal Republic of Nigeria or its agencies to construct a National Rehabilitation Institute and Resource Center, nor was there any kind of meeting held by the Government to establish such center, and Ambassador Usman Sarki knew that he cannot be able to produce any kind of munities of meeting where such discussion and decision took place, but he knowingly or deliberately and intelligently, mislead and misinformed the world with such wrong information, due to his selfish reasons to commit fraud with his statement.
On December 3, 2013, Alhaji Abdulrauf Olarenwaju Iliasu, attended the International Day of Persons with Disability event at Abuja, with the intent to recruit Nigerians with Disabilities for use in perfecting their fraud. He wasted no time to succeed in recruiting some, which he used to establish within ten days, Federal Civil Service Staff with Disabilities Multipurpose Cooperative Society, at Abuja Nigeria.
Alhaji AbdulRauf Olarenwaju Iliasu, thereafter, successfully, defrauded innocent, Nigerian investors, who wanted to help rehabilitate and take care of Nigerians with Disabilities, more than 3 billion Naira, by convincing them, with the copy of Ambassador Usman Sarki’s July 17, 2013, statement at the UN Headquarters, New York.
Unsuspecting Nigerian Investors paid Billions of Naira, to Alhaji Abdulraud Olarenwaju Iliasu and his Federal Civil Services Staff with Disabilities Multipurpose Cooperative Society’s United Bank of Africa (UBA) account # 677236-1 and Zenith Bank with the captions of;
“Federal Civil Services Staff with Disabilities Multipurpose Cooperative Society
The Presidency Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Abuja
Federal Capital Territory, Nigeria”
Through the aforementioned Alhaji Iliasu’s address, with the words, “The Presidency…,” our Nigerian unsuspecting investors were unaware that Alhaji Iliasu, has nothing to do with the Presidency or Former President Goodluck Jonathan.
EFCC investigative staff, Mr. Ibrahim, Phone numbers, 08065755551, 08095755551, 08085585551, Mr. Titus of the ICPC, Phone number 08170000670, ICPC Mr. Emmanuel Phone Number 08058849737, Mr. Sunday Obua of the IGP Office Phone number 08033129778 and the National Human Rights Commission Mr. Omodara phone number 08034104538, did excellent jobs, by conducting very successfully through and extensive investigations, showing valid, debatable and veriable volumes or mountains of evidence and proves beyond reasonable doubt, which established prima facie entitlements for Ahjai Abdulraud Olarenwaju Iliasu and Ambassador Usman Sarki to be arrested, charged and prosecuted for knowingly or deliberately and intelligently conspiring with each other to engage in corruptions and defrauding unsuspecting innocent Nigerians investors of billions of Naira.
Pastor Emmanuel Oguntuyi, Head of Chancry, Permanent Mission of Nigeria to the United Nations, Headquarters New York and the Mission’s Attorney of records, also conducted their investigation, as organized by Ambassador Usman Sarki for use in covering himself up, but then, Pastor Oguntuyi, who is a Priest refused to cover up the crime and wrote good report. His New York Phone number is; 6462709737.
Dr. Sarah Jibril, Special Adviser to the Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Ethics and Values and the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, issued, published disclaimers by several Nigerian Newspapers, against Alhaji Iliasu, for using their office to defraud innocent Nigerian investors.
Alhaji Iliasu, knowingly or deliberately, impersonated that he was the Special Assistant to the Special Adviser to the Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Ethics and Values. He successfully, defrauded unsuspecting Nigerian investor of 40 Million Naira. Dr. Sarah Jibril, as soon as she became aware of this fraud, turned Alhaji Iliasu to the IGP Office of the Fraud taskforce, who arrested and charged him. Alhaji Iliasu was convicted and sent to Prison. He was thereafter bailed out of Prison by Justice Begore. This case is still pending at Abuja Court and Alhaji Iliasu refused to appear before the Judge, when ORDERED several times to Appear before the Judge.
In fact, several Uniformed Nigerian Police Officers, protects Alhaji Iliasu and roams the streets of Nigeria with him on a daily bases with a motor convoy and serine
The EFCC Boss, Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde, who has been fully aware of these known and recognized corrupt practices, committed by Ambassador Sarki and Alhaji Iliasu, but he, knowingly or deliberately looked the other way; and has failed to bring them to justice, same ways that he just started to drastically, bring similar valid cases to justice.
The EFCC Boss, in dealing with these serious issues of constitutional concerns, for Nigerians with Disabilities, he knowingly and deliberately, engaged, himself into discrimination against people with disabilities, disparate treatments, stonewalling of true investigations, obstruction of justice, concealing and covering up facts, and selective enforcements of the EFCC rules and regulations; and the Nigerian Economic and Financial Crime Law.
Mr. Lamorde grossly, violated the mandates set by the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), signed by Nigerian on March 31, 2007 and ratified on September 24, 2010.
Nigerians with Disabilities Living in the United States, led by Chief Eric Ndubueze Ufom, are pleading with President Muhammadu Buhari for the EFCC boss, Mr. Lamorde, to resign or be replaced with a new EFCC Credible Boss, immediately for failure to arrest, charge and prosecute, Alhaji Abdul-Rauf Olarenwaju Iliasu and Ambassador Usman Sarki, same ways others were addressed.
Nigeria in one of the World’s richest oil and gas producing Nations, by with huge pockets of poverty because of Nigeria’s known and recognized endemic corruptions.
More than 25.5 Million long-neglected or ignored and marginalized, poor and helpless, Nigerians with disabilities, directly, suffers from the consequences of Nigeria’s known and recognized endemic corruptions.
Today, Nigerians with Disabilities, were wrongfully, being classified and called terrorists by their Government, who forcefully removed them off the streets of Kaduna State and other states of Nigeria because of Nigeria’s terrorism and endemic corruptions, which they do not have any hand on, but for Mr. Lamorde & others, failure to do their jobs right
