Abuja - The National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) has claimed to have traced £1.558m (N825m) to an account in the United Kingdom that is owned by embattled former Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriations, Abdulmumin Jibrin.
According to a Naij report, the NYCN anti-corruption unit has alleged that the account is in contravention of Nigerian laws of conduct dictating the behaviour of public office bearers.
“Details of the account statement obtained by some lawyers in the UK show that Jibrin has a total £1.558m (approximately N825m) in the account between June 1, 2016 and June 30, 2016,” a statement released by the group revealed.
