Drama as Buhari Did This To ‘Son-in-law’ Over Alleged $65m Fraud (Details below)





The Presidency has disclaimed Gimba Yau Kumo, declared wanted by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) for a N31 billion housing fraud, saying he was no longer son-in-law to President Muhammadu Buhari.Edujandon.com reports that the ICPC had declared Kumo wanted alongside one Tarry Rufus and another Bola Ogunsola, over their connection with issues bordering on the misappropriation of National Housing Funds and diversion of the sum of $65 million.Kumo, the former Managing Director of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria, got married to Fatima, one of the President’s daughters in 2016.But The Presidency, while dissociating any link between Buhari and the alleged fugitive, declared in a statement issued by presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, on Friday night that the relationship between Kumo and the President’s daughter ended some years ago.According to the statement, the alleged suspect was indeed married to an unnamed member of the President’s family, but clarified that the said marriage ended sometime back.“While at some point in time the said fugitive had been linked to a family member in marriage, that relationship has ended some years ago,” Garba said.The statement described the attempt to link the alleged fraudster with the President’s family as “an attempt to generate views and sell copies of sensational reporting.”Addressing the supposed relationship between Buhari and the alleged suspect, The Presidency noted that the ongoing prosecution move by the ICPC only supported the authenticity of the administration’s fight against corruption, not minding who was involved.The statement read: “A running story to the effect that the ICPC has declared ‘an inlaw of the President’ wanted in connection with fraud involving the large sum of money , USD65 million to be exact, this should normally be an affirmation that our anti-corruption agencies/institutions are truly independent and allowed unfettered freedom by the President. Which in fact is the case.“That a state institution can issue such is a measure of the administration’s commitment to accountability, equality and justice.“To set the records straight, the person declared wanted by the ICPC is not an inlaw to President Buhari.“While at some point in time the said fugitive from justice had been linked to a family member in marriage, that relationship has ended some years ago.“It is therefore unfortunate to bring the President’s family into this case. It is in our view an attempt to generate views and sell copies of sensational reporting.“The President’s position at all times is that the law be allowed to take its course. As is well known of him, President Muhammadu Buhari will not provide any cover for crime, no matter who is involved.”
