Man On The Run: EFCC declares oil mogul wanted on its website



The Octopus News

Life can be brutish. Periodically, it forces change on you, ridding you of delusions of grandeur. Life makes you abandon established stereotypes and false sense of worth too, it makes you discard illusions. Ask Benny Peters.

Once upon a time, Peters’ name easily popped up on the list of the movers and shakers of the Nigerian oil sector. He commanded affluence and his name caused doors of opportunities to swing wide open. But his reign as one of the princes of the oil and gas business came to a screeching halt when former President Goodluck Jonathan bowed out of office and President Muhammadu Buhari took over.

Since President Buhari became the President of Nigeria, many of the numerous oil barons the Nigerian oil and gas sector once boasted seem to have faded off the socio-economic scene. One of the big boys in the oil and gas sector and boss of Aiteo Energy, Benny Peters, has become quite scarce. He seems to have abandoned fame to embrace anonymity.

However, EFCC has declared him wanted. According to the report on EFCC website,”The public is hereby notified that Mr. Benedict Peters, whose photographs appear above, are wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Dark complexioned Peters is wanted in connection with a case of criminal conspiracy, diversion of funds and money laundering. He hails from Abakiliki LGA of Ebonyi state. His last known address is No. 8B Agodogba Avenue, Parkview Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos”.
