The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says the leak of names of high-profile individuals under investigation has done damage to its work.

Walter Onnoghen, chief justice of Nigeria; Okonjo-Iweala, former finance minister; Kayode Fayemi, minister of solid minerals, and Ayodele Fayose, Ekiti state governor, had been listed as some of those under investigation by the commission.

Reacting to the reports, Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC spokesperson, said the information was not leaked by the anti-graft agency.

He said the leak had done damage to the commission’s investigation because most of the cases were still at the preliminary stage.

FIFA has confirmed a World Cup qualifier between South Africa and Senegal will be replayed after the referee was banned for match fixing.


The November 2016 tie, which will be restaged in November, was won by South Africa 2-1 after Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey awarded them a controversial penalty.

Lamptey was initially suspended for three months by African football’s ruling body CAF for awarding a penalty for a non-existent handball”, with FIFA handing down the life ban in March.


News of the rematch comes as a boost for Senegal, who are placed third, one point behind Cape Verde and Burkina Faso in African zone qualifying Group D, with two games to go. Only the group winners secure a ticket to the 2018 finals in Russia.


FIFA explained the decision to replay the game had come after sport’s highest court CAS had confirmed “the lifetime ban of match referee, Joseph Lamptey, for match manipulation, the ruling imposed by the FIFA Disciplinary and Appeal Committees”.
