Ojukwu: A Biafran Warlord Honoured In Death, March 12, 2012

He is the third chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC. But he is not new to the anti-corruption war. Ibrahim Lamorde, who was two weeks ago, promoted to the rank of deputy commissioner of police, DCP, has served as director of operations to two former chairmen of the EFCC. He also acted as chairman of the commission before his confirmation two weeks ago by the Senate.
The past three years have not been a smooth one in the nation’s anti-corruption war. Mrs. Farida Waziri who took over from Mallam Nuhu Ribadu in a controversial circumstance seemed to have reversed the little gains Nigeria made in the war against corruption. Even the international community was unhappy with the EFCC under her and showed this by withdrawing funds meant for the commission.
Giving the previous positions he occupied, Lamorde is eminently qualified to be the helmsman of the EFCC. His wealth of knowledge will be an asset to the commission. But this has not always been the case. Will Lamorde make the difference in the war against financial crimes in Nigeria? Will he restore the battered image of the EFCC? Ibrahim Lamorde would from the blow of the whistle indicate what he wants to be remembered for. These are some of the questions we tried to answer in this special report anchored by Assistant Editor, George Emine.
Our big story this week is on Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, former Biafran warlord who was committed to mother earth last week. The outpour of emotions and tributes from prominent Nigerians and world leaders set Ojukwu apart from other war leaders who died un-mourned. Assistant Editor, ’Tunde Babalola reviewed the place of Ojukwu in Nigeria’s history.
Since the resurgence of Boko Haram attacks in the country, dealers in security gadgets have been making brisk business. Those who are into the business have every reason to thank God- case of one man’s poison is another’s meat! ’Tunde Babalola, Assistant Editor wrote the story.
