SAN FRANCISCO, September 17, (THEWILL) – Kennedy Izuagbe, a former director of the defunct Societe Generale Bank Nigeria Plc and managing director of Carlisle Properties and Investment Limited, a company allegedly owned by Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has been declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

The Saraki family also held majority shares in Societe-Generale bank which went under due to bad management.

Izuagbe, 45, who is being investigated in a case of conspiracy and money laundering to the tune of over N3.6 billion, has gone into hiding and all efforts to reach him have proved abortive, the EFCC said in a statement by spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwajaren, adding that Izuagbe is linked to the several shady deals and gross financial misconducts that took place in the bank, in which several millions of naira were granted as loan without due diligence.

The suspect, who is believed to have fled the country, is a native of Iviukhua village, near Agenebode, Etsako East Local Government Area of Edo State.

The EFCC enjoins members of the public with information on the whereabouts of Izuagbe to contact any of its offices in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Enugu, Gombe and Kano, or the nearest police station.
