ICPC declares Buhari’s son-in-law, two others wanted over $65m alleged fraud

Anti-graft agency, Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, on Thursday, declared Gimba Yau Kumo, son-in-law to President Muhammadu Buhari, wanted over an alleged $65million fraud.

ICPC spokesperson, Azuka Ogugua, in a published notice, said Kumo is declared wanted alongside Tarry Rufus and Bola Ogunsola over alleged misappropriation and dispersion of National Housing Funds.

In 2016 in Daura, Katsina State, Kumo, who is a former managing director of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria, married President Buhari’’s daughter, Fatima.

The ICPC statement, however, read, “The persons whose pictures appear above, Mr. Tarry Rufus, Mr. Gimba Yau Kumo and Mr. Bola Ogunsola, are hereby declared WANTED by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) in connection with issues bordering on misappropriation of National Housing Funds and diversion of the sum of Sixty Five Million dollars ($65,000,000).

“Anyone who has useful information on their whereabouts should report to ICPC Headquarters Abuja, any of the ICPC State Offices or the nearest police station.”

Senate Committee on Public Accounts had in April summoned Kumo to explain the alleged irregular award of N3 billion contract during his tenure at the bank.
