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.

“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.”

Kumo served as the Managing Director of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria under President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.
