Abuja - A former cashier has revealed to a probe panel of enquiry how he withdrew N16.7 billion cash for former Plateau State governor, Jonah Jang, Premium Times reports.
Yusuf Pam, a former cashier attached to the office of the Secretary to the State Government, told the panel that he withdrew the N16.7 billion based on “executive directive from the former governor”.
He told the commission that he was given security backup to withdraw the cash, and disclosed that each withdrawal was “usually a maximum of N150 million, which is always delivered to the governor”.
The Judicial Commission of Inquiry has since said the money was not accounted for by the past administration.
The commission was set up to probe Mr. Jang’s eight years as Plateau governor.
The former governor was earlier in the year invited by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for questioning according to News24.
