The incoming Chairman of EFCC, Olukoyede, is set to inherit a substantial caseload of high-profile corruption cases involving former governors, ministers, and senators. These cases involve significant amounts, including at least N772.2 billion and $2.2 billion, alleged to have been misappropriated through money laundering and fund diversion.

Some of the former governors under investigation include Dr. Kayode Fayemi, Ayo Fayose, Chimaroke Nnamani, among others. Additionally, former officials like Col Sambo Dasuki and Diezani Alison-Madueke face ongoing investigations.

Numerous allegations, such as N4 billion misappropriation during Fayemi's tenure and N70 billion diversion in the case of the former Zamfara State governor, have been made. However, the outcomes of these investigations remain uncertain.

Cases involving Nnamani, Abdullahi Adamu, Rabiu Kwankwaso, and Peter Odili, to name a few, continue to linger with varying statuses and allegations.

The former governor of Abia State, Theodore Orji, and his sons were also investigated for alleged misappropriation of public funds and money laundering.

Danjuma Goje, the former Governor of Gombe State, had a case related to N5 billion fraud, which was later handed over to the office of the Attorney-General.

The case of Aliyu Wammako, the former governor of Sokoto State, and Sullivan Chime, the former governor of Enugu State, remains pending.

Other notable cases include that of Ali Modu Sheriff, Sule Lamido, Murtala Nyako, Ayodele Fayose, Jonah Jang, Babangida Aliyu, Gabriel Suswam, Ikedi Ohakim, Lucky Igbinedion, and Senator Stella Oduah.

Notably, cases involving Sambo Dasuki's alleged diversion of $2.1 billion arms fund and Diezani Alison-Madueke's suspected misappropriation of N47.2 billion and $487.5 million have yet to reach a conclusion.
