The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)  has launched a manhunt for a former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Maurice Iwu in connection with  a N23.29b poll bribery scandal.


He (Iwu) is alleged to have drawn up strategies on how the bribery could be perfected.

It was learnt that for doing the job, the ex-INEC chief got a handsome reward.

The EFCC has been on his trail in the last two weeks but he has managed to evade arrest, The Nation learnt.

An EFCC source said: “Our operatives are still looking for him. We have put other security agencies on the alert.
