N23bn Diezani bribe: EFCC arrests ex-Zamfara gov, others by Larry9ja(: 8:31 pm On May 22, 2016

In continuation of its investigations into the $115m (N23bn) bribe allegedly disbursed by a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, Sunday PUNCH learnt the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Saturday arrested a former Governor of Zamfara State, Mamuda Shinkafi; a former Secretary to the Government of Zamfara State, Aminu Nahuce; and Senator Hassan Nasiha, the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Zamfara State.

The fund was allegedly disbursed through Fidelity Bank during the build-up to the 2015 general election.

Sources at the EFCC told our correspondent that the three PDP chieftains were arrested based on the statement of a former Minister of State for Finance, Bashir Yuguda, who reportedly confessed last week that he supervised the disbursement of N450m to leaders of the PDP in Zamfara State.

An impeccable source at the anti-graft agency said, “Operatives of the EFCC Kano zonal office revealed how the N450m was received by former Zamfara SSG, Aminu Nahuce; and one Mallaha as signatories for the documents securing the release of the money on Bashir Yuguda’s instruction which was shared in his house under his supervision.

“In his statement of admission to the investigators last week, Yuguda, a former Finance Minister under ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, indicted the former Governor Shinkafi as a beneficiary of the money.

“Yuguda said in his statement that the ex-governor received N15m while Hassan Nasiha, a former senator and state PDP Chairman of Zamfara State and members of his committee received N5m.”

The EFCC source, however, told our correspondent that the anti-graft agency had told all those involved to return the money as it had been established that the money was stolen.

He said some of those arrested had agreed to return the money, adding that the Zamfara PDP chairman had returned N2m.
