N6bn fraud linked to ex-PDP governorship aspirant

N6bn fraud linked to ex-PDP governorship aspirant

A Peoples Democratic Party ex-governorship aspirant in the 2015 general election in Niger State, Mr. Kantigi Lima,  has been linked to N6bn fraud.

A source in the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, said the anti-graft agency is on the look out for the governorship aspirant who was the commissioner of local government in Niger State under the immediate past governor, Aliyu Babangida.

NAN reports the EFCC may declare Mr. Lima wanted as he has been elusive.

It said the commission had some weeks ago traced N4bn to two accounts in GTBank, both linked to him, and another N2bn has been traced to his UBA account by the agency.

The report said that the‎ ‎discovery brought to N6bn funds traced to accounts held by the politician and companies linked to him

It added that investigations so far pointed in the direction that the funds were syphoned from the Local Government Joint Account of Niger.

“He is on the run and all efforts to track him down have been futile. The next option left for the Commission is to declare him wanted,” NAN quoted the source as saying.
