CBN Investigator Discovers $265 Million in Bank Account Belonging to a 6-Year-Old Child

By Mohammed Bello Doka

In a recent probe led by Special Investigator Jim Obazee, a shocking revelation emerged regarding the financial affairs of former President Muhammadu Buhari’s officials. The investigation reportedly exposed a staggering $275 million found in the bank account of a six-year-old son of Sabiu Yusuf, popularly known as Tunde, who served as a Personal Assistant to Buhari.

Equally surprising was the discovery of another N1.5 trillion in the personal account of the former Personal Assistant, Sabiu Yusuf. The committee, led by Obazee, has been diligently tracing and recovering funds linked to influential figures from the previous administration.

Sources suggest that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is currently engaged in negotiations, employing influential figures to facilitate the repayment of the funds without public exposure. Notably, National Security Adviser Nuhu Ribadu recently expressed concern over the financial state inherited by the current administration, attributing it to widespread looting during Buhari’s tenure.

It is worth noting that Tinubu enlisted the services of Jim Obazee to investigate the activities of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) under Emefiele and related entities. The ongoing investigation has reportedly led to the recovery of over N12 trillion, a significant portion of which is believed to have been embezzled during the previous administration.

In a bold move, the committee, headed by Obazee, has allegedly turned down substantial bribes offered by those implicated in an attempt to avoid arrest and exposure. The investigation continues to shed light on the extent of financial irregularities during the Buhari era, prompting calls for accountability and transparency in governance.

Ganduje Faces New Corruption Charges from Kano Anti-Graft Body

Latest Politics updatein nigeria

Ganduje

The Kano State Anti-Corruption and Public Complaints Commission says it has filed fresh charges of corruption and maladministration against an ex-governor of the state, Abdullahi Ganduje.

“What is happening now is a tip of the iceberg,” the Chairman of the anti-graft commission, Muhuyi Magaji, said on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Tuesday.

“As I am talking to you, we are investigating a case whereby N51.3bn local government funds were directly taking from the government coffers (and) sent to other individuals, and we traced it to people.”

Magaji alleged that the Ganduje government took N1bn from the state coffers a month to the expiration of the administration’s tenure in May 2023 but the money was sent to Bureau de Change operators and not used for road renovation as earmarked.

“We have piled series of cases. We have a case whereby N1bn in April last year (2023) was removed from government coffers under the allocation of renovating 30 roads in the metropolis and it was taken away, sent to Bureau de Change.

“We have a case of N4bn whereby it was sent from the consolidated revenue account of Kano State to an agricultural company. All these cases are before the court,” he said.

What Happens When People-Deceive-People PDP – Lifestyle Nigeria

After more than a year of dithering procrastination, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP finally got its bickering tendencies to a meeting under the aegis of the National Executive Committee, NEC last Thursday.

The meeting was the first in about 18 months, a mark far off from the provisions of the PDP constitution which stipulates that the NEC should meet at least once every quarter.

The delay in meeting was underpinned by the lack of vigour in the opposition party which has seen the once vibrant party swimming in the doldrums. The lack of inertia has been variously attributed to a compromised leadership alleged to be remotely controlled by internal sabouters working in cahoots with strategists of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

For those with PDP DNA in their system, it was eerie that the once-dominant political party could have been so swept aside to the point of irrelevance in the polity.

While the state of inertia was salutary to the strategic plots of some within the party, many others with the desire to keep the party as a firm hotbed for the crystallisation of the Nigerian dream as originally intended picked up the courage to seek a change of direction for the PDP.

Commendation must be especially given to Segun Sowunmi who took the effort of taking the party to court to observe its constitution by holding the NEC meeting.

That court move was what finally compelled the party to hold the NEC meeting last Thursday.

The Ambassador Umar Damagum-led National Working Committee, NWC had in the opinion of some been seen as a parrot of the Nyesom Wike-led tendency.
