Ex-EFCC boss Lamorde to be buried today in Abuja 

Mr Ibrahim Lamorde

The remains of Ibrahim Lamorde, a former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, will be laid to rest in Abuja today, Tuesday, May 28.

According to NAN, a funeral notification revealed that Lamorde will be interred after Zuhr prayer.

The former anti-graft agency chair died after a surgery in Egypt.

“On behalf of the family, friends and colleagues, we write to notify you that the Jana’iza of our late father, brother and uncle, DIG Ibrahim Lamorde and former Chairman of EFCC is coming up on Tuesday, May 28, 2024,” the notification reads.

“The event will be held at the National Mosque Abuja by 1:30 p.m. immediately after Zuhr.”

A family source was quoted as saying that the remains of Lamorde are expected to arrive in Abuja from Egypt today.

When Farida Waziri was dismissed on 23 November 2011, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Lamorde was again appointed Acting Chairman. 

He was confirmed as substantive Chairman of the EFCC on 15 February 2012.

On 9 November 2015, former President Buhari sacked Ibrahim Lamorde, replacing him with Ibrahim Magu.

He was also the pioneer Director of Operations of the anti-graft agency when it was created in 2003.
