FORMER Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has expressed deep sorrow over the death of the former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), DIG Ibrahim Lamorde (rtd), emphasizing the significant impact of his passing on Nigeria.

In a heartfelt statement, personally signed by him, the former minister reflected on their professional interactions.

Mohammed recounted their collaboration during a crucial period when the Federal Government of Nigeria was engaged in a legal battle with Process and Industrial Developments (P&ID) in London.

“Lamorde was clear headed and shared the same vision with me that the P&ID saga would not only be won in the court of law but also in the court of public opinion,” Mohammed said.

He praised Lamorde’s substantial contributions to drafting talking points and articulating positions that were instrumental during engagements with the media and think tanks in London.

“Lamorde’s keen insights, deep institutional knowledge, and strategic acumen ensured that the messages were clear, impactful, and aligned with national interests”, Mohammed said.

Mohammed highlighted that Lamorde’s death is a tremendous loss, not only to his family and colleagues but also to the nation as a whole.

Extending his heartfelt condolences, Mohammed expressed his sympathy to Lamorde’s family and colleagues in the Nigeria Police Force and the EFCC.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones. May his soul rest in perfect peace,” Mohammed concluded.
