Abuja - A former Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Power, Godknows Igali, is in the soup after operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission discovered that he allegedly spent N1.5bn for the purchase of Sports Utility Vehicles which were used by the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation, Punch reports.
The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, had alleged on Thursday that 40 SUVs and other vehicles were recovered from a retired permanent secretary but the minister failed to mention the name of the suspect.
However, detectives at the EFCC said that Igali was the retired civil servant being referred to.
An EFCC operative said that the commission got to know about the vehicles through an artisan who had gone to do some maintenance work at Igali’s Abuja residence.
The artisan was said to have been surprised by the number of vehicles in the retired civil servant’s residence and quickly alerted the EFCC according to Nation.
