The Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mohammed Umar Abba has appointed Detective Commander Ayo Peter Olowonihi as Commandant, EFCC Academy, Karu, Abuja. Olowonihi takes over from Itam Nnaghe Obono, a Deputy Commissioner of Police.

The appointment which is with immediate effect was consummated with a hand-over ceremony today, Monday, January 18, 2021, attended by both Olowonihi and Obono with heads of departments and units of the Academy in attendance.

At the ceremony, Obono charged the officers to keep faith with the critical role they are assigned by the Commission. “The work of training is very critical, and should be taken with the seriousness it requires. For those of you who are here, like I always say, you are already here, so while you are here, give it your best and let those that come know that you know what you are doing and delivering results”.

In his response, Olowonihi appreciated Obono and wished him well at his new assignment. He pledged to take the Academy, which is the brain of the organisation, to where it should be. In his words, ‘the minute the brain stops working it starts to die and this is the brain of the organisation.”
