Shekwoaga is not alone in the troubled waters. With him is the Executive Director of the Niger State Primary Health Development Agency (NSPHDA), Dr. Yahaya Nau’zo.

The duo obtained money under false pretense, according to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), who in a letter to the state government requested for their release for questioning.

“In view of the above, you are requested to release the Executive Director (NSPHDA), Dr. Yahaya Nauzo and the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mr. Mukail Alamin Shekwoaga Bmitosahi to interview the undersigned through the team leader AFF 2 at No 5 Ademola Crescent Wuse II Abuja on Monday 11th December, 2017 at 10.00 am.”
