N400m Fraud investigation of the new Ooni of Ife

The Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission (EFCC) has commenced the
investigation of the new Ooni of Ife, Oba
Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, and his
company, Metropole Interproject
Limited, over his involvement in an
alleged N400 million forgery.

A frontline human rights activist,
Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman, the
Executive Chairman, Centre for Human
Rights and Social Justice (CHRSJ), filed
the petition against the Oba last year.
The petition dated Monday 2nd
November, 2015 entitled

“Request for Prosecution of Prince Enitan Adeyeye
Ogunwusi and his Company named
Metropole Interproject Limited for the
Offence of forgery, Fraudulent
Conversion and Obtaining the sum of
N400 million by false Pretence”

 was forwarded to the EFCC Chairman and
received on Friday, November 6, 2015.
Copies were also sent to President
Muhammadu Buhari, Transparency
International (TI), Embassy of the United
Kingdom (UK), as well as the United
States of America (USA) and Republic of

The petition was supported with the
series of evidence, including a petition
letter dated 7th September, 2015 which
was authored by a Senior Advocate of
Nigeria (SAN), Mr. Rotimi Jacobs of
Rotimi Jacobs & Co Chambers.

Comrade Sulaiman confirmed in a
signed statement issued on Monday in
Lagos that he received a phone call from
an EFCC official advising his group to
report at the commission’s Economic
and Governance Crime (EGC 1)
department in Lagos this week.
In his words:
Comrade Sulaiman beckoned on the
EFCC to also:

The Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission (EFCC) has invited us and
we are going to appear before it this
week to substantiate our position on
the subject matter. Our belief is that
to every logical mind, the gold is gold,
regardless of whether a Prince or
beggar, is holding it in his hand.

There is need for inculcation of moral
value to our society through the
palace in every community in the land
and anybody that would occupy the
position of authority should come
with integrity in order to serve as a
good example to younger generation.
It is also our belief that if you are
preaching equity, you must come with
clean hand.

Worshiping of money and
world materials increases the social
vices in the country today which
makes the corruption to be on the
increase geometrically.

We don’t have any personal grudge against Oba
Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi because we
believe that God makes a leader but
we want justice to be done on any
issue of this nature as it has been
part of our stand.

 Anybody alleges of any wrong doing needs to clear his or
her name first before occupying any
exalted position. It is because Nigeria
as a country has been eroded of moral
values where brigandage takes the
order of the day.
