Immediate past Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Lamorde has flown out of the country for medical treatment.
Counsel to Lamorde, Festus Keyamo, at a meeting with members of the Senate Committee on Ethics, said that Mr Lamorde has gone abroad for medical treatment.
Lamorde was scheduled to appear before the Senate committee over allegations of mismanagement of funds recovered from suspects in cases handled by the EFCC under him.
Keyamo asked the committee on ethics to give his client, Mr Lamorde one month to conclude his medical treatment before appearing before the committee.
However, the committee members disagreed, saying Mr Lamorde must appear before the committee on Tuesday, November 24.
