EFCC Declares Kastina Ex-Gov, Shema Wanted

The Economic and financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has tagged a former governor of Katsina State, Mr. Ibrahim Shema, wanted for an alleged fraud amounting to N76 billion.
The anti-graft agency says it took the decision because Mr. Shema had ignored all invitations since 2015 to answer questions over the allegations made by the current governor of the state, Governor Aminu Masari.
Mr. Masari is said to have been displeased with the handover note he received from his predecessor and thereafter set a panel to investigate the management of the state’s finances by Mr. Shema, vowing to ensure that all stolen funds are returned to the government coffers.
The agency further states that the former Katsina governor is wanted for criminal conspiracy, inflation of contracts, abuse of office, diversion of funds and embezzlement, adding that all efforts to locate him has also proved unsuccessful.
