The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has declared a son-in-law of President Muhammadu Buhari wanted over an alleged $65million fraud.
Gimba Yau Kumo, who is married to one of the president’s daughters, Fatima, was alleged to have commited the crime alongside two others identified as Tarry Rufus and Bola Ogunsola.
The ICPC in a statement by its spokesman, Azuka Ogugua, asked anyone with useful information on their whereabouts to report to the commission or the nearest police station.
“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),” the ICPC said.
