Ibrahim Shema

The immediate ex-Governor of Katsina state, Ibrahim Shema, who was declared wanted on Wednesday by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly diverting N18 billion of government’s fund to his private account has turned himself in.

Reports indicated that Shema reported to EFCC office in Abuja around 9:30 a.m. Friday.

Recall that the EFCC had said that the former governor, a member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, was declared wanted after efforts to get him to respond to the allegations through invitations by the EFCC failed.

According to his spokesperson, Oluwabusola Olawale,  the ex-governor turned himself in because “he is a law abiding citizen who has absolutely nothing to fear.”

He added that Shema “went to submit himself to the EFCC even though the agency has not been fair to him in handling his case.”
