Okiro was quoted by Vanguard as saying that Lamorde performed well at the EFCC and would soon be re-assigned.
“He is still a serving Commissioner of Police. He will come back to us for re-posting. He was only seconded to EFCC.
“He will not be required to go through any process because he was just on secondment. The moment he reports, we will post him.”
“He did very well. He did the Police proud. He performed his beat and we are happy and proud of him.”
