Investigations have revealed that religious institutions, bodies, and groups are increasingly being exploited as conduits for money laundering, Olukoyede said during his speech at the event.

It was discovered that a certain religious group in this nation was financing terrorists. We were able to link some money that had been laundered to a religious institution, and when we inquired about it and continued our inquiry, we got a restraining order stopping us from carrying out our investigation,” he said
