The Ex-NIA officer and wife Folashade are in trouble again after being declared wanted by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC over failure to appear in court to answer their charges on the money laundering allegations brought against them by the commission.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC had publicly declared Folasade and Ayodele Oke, her husband to answer allegations of about #13Bn of money allegations of which both failed to appear before the court.
In the earlier judgement, Justice Chukwujeku Aneke of a Federal High Court Lagos, had on February 7, 2019, declared warrant of arrest on the couple heads after EFCC presented an oral application for such before the judge.
This was contained in a statement on Sunday by the acting EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade.

Oke and his wife are wanted in connection with the $43m, £27,800 and N23.8m cash recovered by the commission from an apartment at Osborne Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, in April 2017.
Under the former DG, the NIA was said to have collected $289,202,382 in cash for special operations from the account of the National Petroleum Investment Management Services at the Central Bank of Nigeria in February 2015.
The agency had claimed that the funds were meant for covert intelligence operations, but the Federal Government insisted it was a case of looting.
The Federal Government subsequently set up a three-man panel headed by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo which indicted Oke and hence his recommended dismissal.
Criminal charges were subsequently filed against him and his wife in February this year over the cash found at the Ikoyi apartment.

The Federal Government on Thursday give the update as to the implementation of the signed minimum wage of N30, 000, possibly they may start the implementation on the Batch B NYSC members.
The Minister of Finance, Zainab Usman said that the Federal Government have set up a committee to oversee as to which the implementation of the minimum wage of N30, 000 could be financed.
She said that the Federal Government would as well have to negotiate on some grounds with the labour union in order to determine the amount that would be added to the workers salary that has already equalize or above the newly approved minimum wage.
The full statements of Mrs Zainab as to how she brief the newsmen on the steps the Federal Government has taken towards the implementation of the newly approved minimum wage of N30 000, is as shown, quoted below:
“We have looked at the report and what we are working on now is how we can finance it”
“Apart from the increase of the minimum wage from N18, 000 to N30, 000, there is also consequential adjustment that we have to negotiate with the labour unions.
“The total implication of that would be worked out only after the negotiations and that would involve determining how much increase every other staff that is above the minimum wage would get.
The Minister further added that the NYSC also deserve to earn a little more than minimum wage of N30, 000 but said all would be more certain after the meeting with the labour union.
She said, “It could be a flat amount or a proportion, but the other aspect that is clear is that there would be an increase for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) as well because by the Act they should earn at least the minimum wage and the NYSC also has to increase to that N30, 000.
“So, because we have not done the negotiation with labour, I cannot give you the details of what we are projecting because it is simply on projections, at the end of the day, it is what we agree with labour that will be the amount that is due.”
