Nyako Wants EFCC To Probe Fintiri Over N18BN Fraud Allegation

Former Adamawa State governor, Murtala Nyako, has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission(ICPC) to probe the administration of Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri  over N18 billion allegation levelled against it.

A statement by Nyako’s spokesperson, Ahmad Sajoh, said the Nyako Group will not relent until the matter is fully investigated and culprits brought to justice.

 “We wish to call on the anti-corruption agencies (ICPC and EFCC) to investigate the matter thoroughly, because as they say, there is no smoke without fire,” he said.

He added that the impeachment of Nyako and removal of Ngilari by the Assembly were predicated on false allegations of corruption in order to “pave way for the legislators to have access to state funds for self enrichment.”

He added: “Fintiri should come clean and embrace the truth so that it can set him free. On our part, we shall make sure that the matter is not swept under the carpet (since we hold the broom) or hidden in the folded umbrella of the PDP.”
Press Secretary to the Speaker, Solomon Kumangar, could not be reached for comments as his phone was switched off.
