Top Nigerian politician in trouble as EFCC uncovers N6billion in bank accounts
An EFCC insider told PREMIUM TIMES the discovery brings to N6 billion funds traced to accounts held by the politician and companies linked to him.
The Commission had weeks earlier traced N4billion to two accounts in GTBank, both linked to Mr. Liman.
The first account belongs to Sadiq Air Travel Agency Limited and the second to Kantigi.
“He is on the run and all efforts to track him down have been futile. The next option left for the Commission is to declare him wanted,” the source said.
The source further disclosed that investigations so far indicated the funds were siphoned from the local government joint account of Niger State.
Mr. Liman could not be reached for comments Friday morning.
When contacted, EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed Mr. Liman was being investigated.
“It is an ongoing investigation so I am not able to provide details at this time,” he said.
