Lai Mohammed mourns DIG Ibrahim Lamorde (rtd)

Alhaji Lai Mohammed, former Minister of Information and Culture, has expressed deep grief over the loss of former Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Chairman DIG Ibrahim Lamorde (rtd), emphasising the significance of his departure for Nigeria.

In an emotional message signed by himself, the former minister reflected on their professional encounters.

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.
