FOLLOWING the arrest warrant issued by Justice M. N. Yunusa of the Federal High Court, Lagos, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared the trio of Jude Benjamin Amanze, Chinelo Nwigwe and David Nwigwe wanted.

A statement on Wednesday by the EFCC Head, Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, read that they are wanted in connection with the case instituted against the former governor of Enugu State, Dr. Chimaroke Nnamani, who is alleged to have diverted public funds and embezzled billions of naira as governor of the state from 1999 to 2007.

Amanze, who was his special aide, is alleged to have served as a conduit in siphoning over N514 million belonging to the Enugu State Government. EFCC investigation revealed that a road construction contract awarded to one Chief Jacob Nwatu between 2002 and 2003 was not executed, yet N514 million was paid for it but traced to Nwatu's Zenith Bank account.

Further investigations revealed that N350 million was latter moved from this account into three Zenith Bank accounts operated solely by Amanze, who was also said to have warehoused other funds in the said Zenith Bank accounts, which were disbursed either directly to or for the benefit of persons connected with Nnamani, his companies or associates.
