The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says it has discovered a religious body laundering money for terrorists terrorising the country.

Ola Olukoyede, the chairman of the anti-graft agency on Wednesday, revealed this during a one-day dialogue in Abuja.

Speaking at a program themed: “Youth, Religion, and the Fight against Corruption”, he said the religious organisation was uncovered while protecting a money launderer after some money suspected to have been laundered was traced to the organisation’s bank account.

Olukeyode said, “A religious sect in this country had been found to be laundering money for terrorists. We were able to trace some laundered money to a religious organisation.”

“When we approached the religious organisation about it, and we were carrying out our investigation, we got a restraining order stopping us from carrying out our investigation.”
