An unnamed Northern governor has been placed under watch-list by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly flagrantly withdrawing about N60 billion in cash since he became the governor of the state in 2015.

Although the governor’s name was kept under wraps since he still enjoys immunity until May 29, 2023, the EFCC has said that Nigerians would be able to get the details of the cash ‘manipulations with impunity’ once the North-Central governor’s tenure elapses.

Chairman of anti-graft agency, Abdulrasheed Bawa, made the revelation in the latest edition of the commission’s magazine “EFCC ALERT”, on Sunday in Abuja.

Mr. Bawa explained that the exposure on the looting of the huge cash was made possible through the newly established Intelligence Department of the commission.Related Posts

Bawa was quoted as saying, “I can tell you for free that the new Department of Intelligence that we have created is working wonders.

“They have come up with a lot of intelligence. In one of them, a governor in a North-Central state within the last six years (one individual) has withdrawn over N60 billion in cash.


“We are looking at all of that, and I assure you that at the end of all of our investigations, Nigerians are going to be briefed of what we are doing behind the scene on cyber-crime, politically-exposed persons as well as engaging government agencies to ensure that we have better processes and procedures on how to do government business,” Bawa said.
