ICPC has Declared Buhari’s son-in-law and two others Wanted for $65 Million Fraud


Gimba Yau Kumo, the President’s son-in-law, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd. ), has been declared wanted by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission for suspected $65 million theft.

Kumo, a former Managing Director of the Federal Mortgage Bank, married Buhari’s daughter in Daura, Katsina State, in October 2016.

According to a notice published on the commission’s website, Kumo was wanted along with Tarry Rufus and Bola Ogunsola for alleged misappropriation and disbursement of national housing fund.

Mrs Azuka Ogugua, the ICPC’s spokeswoman, signed the notice.
It read, “The persons whose pictures appear above, Mr Tarry Rufus, Mr Gimba Yau Kumo and Mr Bola Ogunsola, are hereby declared wanted by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission in connection with issues bordering on misappropriation of National Housing Funds and diversion of the sum of $65m.

“Anyone with details about their location can contact the ICPC Headquarters in Abuja, any of the ICPC State Offices, or the nearest police station.”

Kumo’s time at FMBN was marred by corruption charges.

He and three others reportedly received exorbitant severance payments at the close of their contracts in October 2014.

The Senate Public Accounts Committee summoned Kumo in April to clarify the suspected illegal award of a N3 billion contract while he was still at the bank.
