$65m fraud: ICPC declares Buhari’s son-in-law wanted
Son-in-law of President Muhammadu Buhari has been declared wanted by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) over an alleged $65 million fraud.
This was contained in a notice published on Thursday by the spokesperson of the anti-graft commission, Azuka Ogugua.
According to the spokesperson, Kumo is declared wanted alongside Tarry Rufus and Bola Ogunsola over alleged misappropriation and dispersion of national housing funds.
Recall that Kumo who is a fomer managing director of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria married Fatima, the president’s daughter in 2016 at Daura, Katsina state.
“The persons whose pictures appear above, Mr. Tarry Rufus, Mr. Gimba Yau Kumo and Mr. Bola Ogunsola, are hereby declared WANTED by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) in connection with issues bordering on misappropriation of National Housing Funds and diversion of the sum of Sixty Five Million dollars ($65,000,000),” the ICPC said.
“Anyone who has useful information on their whereabouts should report to ICPC Headquarters Abuja, any of the ICPC State Offices or the nearest police station.”
The senate committee on public accounts in April had summoned Kumo to explain the alleged irregular award of N3 billion contract when he was still at the bank.
