Efcc To Arraign Ex-police Commissioner, Mohammed Sambo Over Alleged Fraud
SAN FRANCISCO, May 05, (THEWILL) – The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has said it will on Thursday, May 12, 2016 arraign a retired Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Sambo, before a Federal Capital Territory High Court sitting in Maitama, Abuja on one-count charge bordering on criminal breach of trust and obtaining money by false pretence to the tune of N10m (Ten Million Naira).
Sambo, who connived with one Nuhu Bello Dabai, had allegedly duped the complainant, Abdul Malik Bello, Managing Director/ CEO, Ideal Sunbeam International Company Limited, of the sum after claiming that he needed to defray both the survey and other preliminary expenses involved in the execution of a contract worth over N1bn (One Billion Naira) purportedly awarded him by Zamfara State Governor, Abdul Aziz Abubakar Yari.
The accused person was subsequently arrested and granted an administrative bail by the Commission on January 19, 2015.
He, however, jumped the administrative bail granted him on April 7, 2015.
After playing hide-and-seek, he was eventually re-arrested on Wednesday, May 3, 2016.
