Nigeria’s ex Senate President David Mark might soon be invited by the EFCC for questioning for owning several offshore companies in tax havens.
David Mark is among the Nigerians indicted by a leak from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca.
The Panamanian law firm, reputed as one of the most secretive companies in the world, had helped clients to register offshore entities, some of which are then used to launder money, evade tax and dodge sanctions.
Apart from the ex Senate President others mentioned in the secret leak are: Senate President Bukola Saraki, his wife, Toyin, former Delta State Governor James Ibori, Mr. Laolu Saraki, Mr. Obi Asika and Mr. Olufela Ibidapo.
Yesterday, former Defence Minister Gen. Yakubu Danjuma’s name was linked with some firms.
“We are studying all the documents and definitely we will investigate the allegations against all the Nigerians implicated in the Panama Papers,” an EFCC official reportedly said.
“These allegations may lead to further clues on whether or not public funds were used in acquiring some of these secret assets.
