Ibrahim Lamorde, the former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has passed away in Egypt at the age of 61.

Lamorde had traveled to Egypt for medical treatment, and his death was confirmed by a close associate.

The deceased served as the third Executive Chairman of the EFCC from 2012 to 2015 and was known for his uncompromising stance against corruption.

During his tenure, he oversaw the conviction of several high-profile cases, including the recovery of billions of naira in looted funds.


Confirming his death in a terse statement on Sunday, EFCC said, it received with shock the sudden death of one of its former Executive Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde.

“Lamorde, pioneer Director of Operations and third substantive Chairman of the EFCC between February 15, 2012 and November 9, 2015, served the nation actively as a focused and gallant anti- graft fighter.

“He will be sorely missed both at the EFCC and the nation at large.


The Commission prays for the repose of his soul and comfort for his family, the EFCC and the entire nation”, the statement reads.
