ICPC DECLARES BUHARI’s SON-IN-LAW WANTED OVER ALLEGED $65m FRAUD
Son-in-law to President Muhammadu Buhari, GIMBA YAU KUMO has been declared wanted by anti-graft agency, Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) over an alleged $65 million fraud.
A statement signed by the spokesperson of ICPC, Azuka Ogugua yesterday, Thursday May 13, 2021, indicates that Kumo, who married Buhari’s daughter, Fatima in 2016, is declared wanted alongside TARRY RUFUS and one BOLA OGUNSOLA over alleged misappropriation and diversion of national housing funds.
ICPC’s statement said, “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).
“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.”
It would be recalled that barely a week after Kumo’s marriage to President Buhari’s daughter, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) went after him over a three billion naira fraud he allegedly committed as Managing Director of Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria.
Kumo was reported to have been under intense investigation before his marriage to Fatima on October 28, 2016.
