BEVERLY HILLS, November 07, (THEWILL) – A member of the House of Representatives from Benue state, Herman Hembe, has accused suspended member of the House, Abdulmumin Jibrin of running away from prosecution.

Jibrin, who was suspended from the house over some allegations leveled against the House leadership, has fled the country over an alleged attempt to assassinate him and kidnap his family.

He vowed not return to Nigeria until his safety was guaranteed, stating that the silence of President Muhammadu Buhari on the allegations of padding of the 2016 budget, was sending a wrong signal to Nigerians.

But, in a statement on Monday , Hembe said the embattled lawmaker fled to London because ‎the anti-graft agencies were closing in on him on his past deeds.

The statement reads, “My attention has been drawn to a statement issued by the suspended member Abdulmumin Jibrin who has fled to United Kingdom.”

“Jibrin's allegation that his life is under threat is laughable and foolish. I understand that the anti-graft agencies are closing in on him  with their investigation into his past deeds.”

“He might have got the hint of his possible and prosecution and decided to flee while raising false alarm.”

“May I remind him that no matter where he goes justice will surely catch up with him as there is no hiding place for criminals in our today's world.”
