EFCC to arrest Jibrin over N17 billion money laundering scandal

13 August 2016, 14:56

Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is set to arrest former House Chairman of the Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, over an alleged money laundering scandal amounting to N17 billion.

According to a Naij report, Jibrin had previously claimed that he had been invited to the Commission to provide evidence on allegations he leveled against embattled House Speaker Yakubu Dogara.

Jibrin, however, allegedly failed to disclose that he had in fact been grilled over past financial transactions and had been made to answer on several petitions that were previously filed against him.

The EFCC has alleged that Jibrin has three petitions filed against his name, all of which involved money laundering resulting in billions of naira, The Guardian reports.

In 2012, the former Chairman was allegedly probed on money laundering in the amount of N15 billion. Another case is said to have involved the laundering of N2 billion which was conducted in the name of a firm that he owned.

Jibrin has since proceeded to the Abuja Federal High Court to seek injunctions against any possible arrest while filing two lawsuits, one against Police Inspector-General Ibrahim Idris, and another against Speaker Dogara.
