President Muhammadu Buhari’s son in-law, Gimba Yau Kumo, has been declared wanted by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) over an alleged $65 million fraud.
In a statement released by the agency, Azuka Ogugua, who is the spokesperson of ICPC said that Kumo who is the former managing director of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria, was declared wanted alongside Tarry Rufus and Bola Ogunsola over alleged misappropriation and dispersion of national housing funds.
The statement read;
“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.”
Kumo who married President Buhari’s daughter in 2016 at Daura, Katsina state, was invited by the senate committee on public account in April, to explain the alleged irregular award of N3 billion contract when he was still at the bank.
