President Muhammadu Buhari’s son-in-law and former Managing Director of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria (FMBN), Gimba Yau Kumo, and two others have been declared wanted by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) over an alleged $65 million fraud.
On the wanted list of the anti-graft agency along with Kumo are Tarry Rufus and Bola Ogunsola, according to the commission’s spokesperson, Mrs Azuka Ogugua.
In April 2021, the Senate Committee on Public Accounts had summoned Kumo over alleged irregular awards of N3 billion contracts while he held sway as the CEO.
Kumo had married Fatima, the president’s daughter, in 2016 at Daura, Katsina State.
Ogugua 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”.
