A Paradise For Maggots: A Book Reveals How Lamorde Predicted His Return To The EFCC
Ibrahim Lamorde, EFCC

“There will still be another day. Someday, some of these people would still be taken to court in handcuffs. They will go to jail.” These were the words of Ibrahim Lamorde who was appointed as Acting Chairman of the EFCC yesterday.

A book on the Nuhu Ribadu-era at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, A Paradise for Maggots: The Story of a Nigerian Anti-Graft Czar, authored by University of California, Davis professor, Wale Adebanwi, reveals how newly appointed Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde, predicted his return to the anti-graft commission in 2009, about a year after President Umaru Yar’Adua removed him and appointed Mrs. Farida Waziri.

Lamorde, who was then been posted to Kaduna after suffering harassments in the aftermath of his removal from the EFCC, assured Adebanwi that he would return to the EFCC and continue the anti-graft war that he and Ribadu waged before their removal by Yar’Adua.
Adebanwi writes: ‘There will still be another day,’ replied Lamorde when I asked if their removal from the EFCC could be taken as the end of a dream. ‘Some day, some of these people would still be taken to court in handcuffs. They will go to jail.’

Below are the relevant parts of the book and a brief description of the new EFCC Chairman.
“‘I would like you to know that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is really recognised as a first-class institution and I would like to underscore to you today that the US government will be continuing our commitment and our support to the EFCC.’ Robin Renne Sanders, the US Ambassador to Nigeria, gave that assurance when she visited the EFCC headquarters in March 2008, while Ibrahim Lamorde was still in charge as acting chairman.
