EFCC Declares Bauchi Guber Aspirant Wanted Over Alleged $.5m Scam
… Also, Banker Over Alleged N6.28b Fraud
SAN FRANCISCO, September 07, (THEWILL) - A gubernatorial aspirant in Bauchi State, Abdulahi Usman Adamu, alias Dan China, has been declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
The politician cum miner is wanted by the anti-graft agency for allegedly obtaining the sum of $500,000 USD (Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) from a Chinese Company, Shengjia International (HK) Limited, by false pretence, the commission said in a weekend statement.
The suspect allegedly obtained the sum from the Chinese firm as part payment for the supply of 3000MT of Lead Ore, a contract he failed to execute.
Following a petition by the Economic and Commercial Counsellor's Office of the Embassy of the People's Republic of China, the EFCC invited the suspect for questioning but he failed to honour the invitation. The suspect is currently on the run as efforts to track him, including several visits to his home in Narabi, Bauchi, proved futile, the EFCC said.
'Consequently, the Commission enjoins any one with useful information on his whereabouts to contact its head office in Wuse 2, Abuja or zonal offices in Gombe, Kano, Enugu, Port Harcourt and Lagos; or the nearest police station.
His last known address is No. 1 Sabon Gari, Narabi, in Toro Local Government Area of Bauchi state,' the EFCC said.
In the same vein, a banker, Godswill Oyegwa Oyoyou, an Information Technology staff of a new generation bank has been declared wanted by the EFCC in a case of fraud involving N6.28 billion.
Godswill allegedly conspired with some scammers and obtained the sum of N6.28 billion (Six Billion and Twenty-Eight Million Naira) from his bank after hacking into the bank's database. The 38-year-old is from Isoko South local government area of Delta State.
