A former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Lamorde, has reportedly died in Egypt at the age of 61.

According to an online medium, Premium Times, which cited ‘close associates,’ Lamorde died on Sunday in Egypt, where he had travelled for medical treatment.

However, newsmen cannot independently verify the development as of press time, as Lamorde’s family and the EFCC’s spokesperson, Dele Oyewale, could not be reached for comments on Sunday morning.

Born on December 20, 1962, Lamorde joined the Nigerian Police in 1986 and retired as a Deputy Inspector General of Police in 2021.

As a Police officer, he served as the chairman of the EFCC between 2011 and 2015.

According to his profile on the EFCC’s website, Lamorde was the third executive chairman of the Commission.

He was appointed in an acting capacity as chairman of the commission on November 3, 2011, following the removal of Farida Waziri by former President Goodluck Jonathan.

He was subsequently confirmed as the third substantive chairman of the commission by the Senate on February 15, 2012.
