In a document dated July 17, 2019 with reference number 3000/EFCC/IL/Vol.3 and addressed to the Comptroller, Nigeria Immigration Service and signed by the Zonal Head of the EFCC, Isyaku Isharu, the Commission urged the NIS not to issue new passports to them.

Some of those on the list include: Commissioner for Finance, Nurudeen Banu; Special Adviser, Commissioner for Energy, Eleja Taiwo Banu; Chief of Staff, and Abdulwahab Yusuf.

Others are: Saidu Habibat Salman, Ahmadu Abdul Yekini, Abi-Clyde Victor Olusegun, Adeyemi Ademola Olanrewaju, Gold Sola Isiaka, Mustapha Amirat Bolanle Queen, Fatigun Benjamin Sehinde and Saka Aminat Atinuke.

The investigation also hinges on an alleged Paris Club refund diversion amounting to about N20bn.
