The EFCC Headquarters Notorious Beninese businessman Gnanhoue Nazaire has fled charges from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) including forgery and other criminal charges related to a scam he masterminded in Nigeria.

SaharaReporters has also learned that Mr. Nazaire has failed to present himself to EFCC investigators several times previously. He has also fled to France, according to one source.

When SaharaReporters contacted Mr. Nazaire he denied that he was fleeing from Nigerian authorities, he stated that “I am not fleeing from anyone, in fact I will be in Nigeria next week.”

Mr. Nazaire refused to tell our SaharaReporters correspondent about his activities in Nigeria when he returned. He also denied being involved in any criminal activities during the time he was carrying out business in Nigeria.

SaharaReporters previously reported that Mr. Nazaire attempted to thwart the EFCC from taking him to court over these financial crimes but failed.

The EFCC claims that they were able to catch the forgery, in part, because one signature was forged when the victim was out of the country.
