Ex-IGP, Tafa Balogun is dead

A former Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Tafa Balogun, is dead.

Family sources confirmed his death to Daily Trust on Thursday.

Details of his passing were however withheld.

Balogun was born on August 8, 1947, at Ila-Orangun in Osun State and was named the 21st Inspector-General of Police on March 6, 2002.

On April 4, 2005, Balogun was arraigned at the Federal High Court, Abuja for stealing and laundering of over $100million in his three years as Inspector General of Police from the Police treasury.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) brought 70 charges against him.

But he made a plea bargain with the court in exchange for returning much of the property and money. He was sentenced to six months in jail.
