The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has secured a warrant to arrest Ayodele Oke, the sacked Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), and his wife, Folashade.
The arrest order followed an application filed by Rotimi Oyedepo, counsel to the EFCC, which was granted on Thursday.
Justice Chukwujeku Aneke issued the order consequent upon the oral application argued by the anti-graft agency.
"I have carefully considered the oral application for the arrest of the person mentioned herein and I am convinced beyond reasonable doubt that the said application is meritorious. Accordingly the application is hereby granted as prayed. It is hereby ordered that Ambassador Ayodele Oke and wife, Folasade Oke, be arrested anywhere they are sighted in world," the Judge said.
The case has also been adjourned till March 18, 2019, for report of arrest.
