Northern Governor Withdrew N60b Cash – EFCC



Asset Declaration: EFCC Extends Deadline To Bank MDs, Others

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has revealed that a Northern Governor personally withdrew cash of N60 billion from his state treasury.

Naija News reports that this was made known by the EFCC chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, in a story published on the agency’s magazine, EFCC Alert.

While refusing to give out his name, he disclosed that the governor is from the North Central part of the country.

Bawa said: “I can tell you for free that the new Department of Intelligence that we have created is working wonders.

“They have come up with a lot of intelligence. In one of them, a governor in a North-Central state within the last six years (one individual) has withdrawn over N60 billion in cash.

”We are looking at all of that, and I assure you that at the end of all of our investigations, Nigerians are going to be briefed of what we are doing behind the scene on cybercrime, politically exposed persons as well as engaging government agencies to ensure that we have better processes and procedures on how to do government business.”
