Hon Jibrin Lands in Trouble Over Budget Padding Accusations

Abdulmumin Jibrin

Hon. Jibrin Abdulmumin may soon be arrested by the police over a N17bn fraud and money laundering petitions leveled against him, Punch reports.

Reports say the ex Chairman of the House of Reps Appropriation Committee’s meeting with the police and the EFCC didn’t go exactly as he’d alleged.

Jibrin is accusing Speaker Yakubu Dogara and other principal officers of the House of padding the 2016 budget for their own interests. He’d allegedly visited anti graft agencies to submit documents to buttress his claims.

However, it’s believed that Hon. Jibrin didn’t go voluntarily but he was invited for questioning for financial crimes by the agency.

“In 2012, the EFCC was said to have investigated and charged Jibrin to court over money laundering allegations and contract abuses in his Bebeji/Kiru Federal Constituency in Kano State.

There was also a money laundering charge of N15bn against him and a former Governor of Nasarawa State, Mr. Aliyu Akwe-Doma, wherein the two were arraigned by the EFCC.

Another case involved N2bn, which he reportedly laundered in the name of Green Forest Investment Limited, a firm he owned. However, the charges were later abandoned.

He might be arrested and charged to court by the anti-graft commission anytime from now, Punch said.
