The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) presently has at least 76 persons on its list of wanted individuals.

Among the number of persons wanted for various offences are a few politicians and former public office holders, most of whom are high profile and well-known.

In compiling the list of the seven most wanted, we have taken into cognizance the effects of their crimes on the country, the sheer size of their alleged loot and the profile of such persons.

Here are the seven most wanted persons on EFCC’s watch list.
