ICPC Recovers Billions Of Naira, Expensive Cars From Buratai’s Abuja Home

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has recovered N1.85 billion from a house and office said to belong to former Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai in Abuja, multiple sources told SaharaReporters.

Buratai, a retired Lieutenant General was the COAS between 2015 and 2021.

Sources said ICPC officials stormed the house in the Wuse area, beside the National Open University of Nigeria Campus in Abuja last week after it received a tip-off from a whistleblower.

“Last week Thursday, ICPC officials stormed a house in Wuse area of Abuja, beside National Open University and arrested a man, Kabiru Salisu after they saw N850 million cash in the house,” a source told SaharaReporters.

“He claimed the money belonged to Tukur Buratai who was in Cotonou at that time.

“Officials of the ICPC took him to an office where another N1billion in cash was also discovered. Also, bulletproof cars, BMW, G-Wagon worth N450m were recovered.”

“Serious pressure is being mounted to claim money found was only N30m,” another source said.

Electricity: Osun community protests 12 years total blackout

Residents of Garage Olode in Ife South Local Government Area of Osun State, on Saturday, protested the total blackout the town had been subjected to in the past 12 years.

The protesters, who trooped out en-masse to express their grievance over the slow pace of the ongoing electrification and reconnection project embarked on by the Osun State Government, blocked the busy Ondo-Ife road.

This development caused disruption in the smooth flow of traffic on the stretch of the road.

They were armed with placards with different inscriptions all calling on Governor Adegboyega Oyetola to ensure their stay in darkness ended soon.

Several motorists and their passengers were left stranded as the busy road was blocked for over two hours by the angry protesters.

Meanwhile, the Osun Commissioner for Works, Oluremi Omowaiye stated that within the next three weeks, power would be restored to the town.

Omowaiye added that the State government had put in a lot into the project

According to him, “It is quite unfortunate they have not had power supply since 2009 but the good news is that within the next 3 weeks, the power restoration project embarked on by Oyetola administration will be completed and there will be power.

“Oyetola administration has put in a lot into the project I can confirm. So they will smile soon.”

Kano Governor Approves N110million To Non-existent Company For Road Project

A report by Economic Confidential has revealed how the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, awarded a road contract in 2019 to a non-existent construction company.

According to the report, a total of N110million was approved for the construction of the Ado Bayero Road, which is currently in a state of disrepair.

The Ado Bayero Road Network project at Dorayi Babba in the Gwale local government area of the state was first awarded in 2019 by the State Executive Council chaired by Governor Ganduje and a total sum of N110million had been approved for it across the 2019, 2020 and 2021 budgets.

Based on the measurement of a certified surveyor and testimonies by residents of the community, the abandoned project is just a 1-kilometre road.

Meanwhile, the construction company to which the contract is awarded, STONEGATE QUARIES LIMITED is “unlicensed, unregistered and untraceable.”

Efforts to get details of the company from the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), showed that it did not have a legal presence as it was not registered.

Also, keyword search of the company’s name and status on popular search engine, Google brought no results.

However, an official status report generated on 31st of March, 2022 from the CAC revealed the existence of another construction company similar to the one in question, but with different names and addresses.

The construction company to which the Kano State Government awarded the road contract to is “STONEGATE QUARIES LTD” situated at 1011 Domkat Bali LN. Mabushi District, Abuja while the company found on the CAC website with a similar but different detail is an inactive company named “STONEGATE ENGINEERING AND QUARIES LTD” situated at No. 5, Gana Street, Maitama, Abuja, FCT.

In spite of the approval of N110million since 2019, community residents have spent more than N14million on the repair of the road to ease their movements.

Abba Kyari’s Co-defendants plead guilty to Drug Trafficking

Two co-defendants of Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abba Kyari, on Monday pleaded guilty to drug trafficking charges levelled against them by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that while Kyari and his police co-defendants pleaded not guilty to the charge, the 6th and 7th defendants, Chibunna Patrick Umeibe and Emeka Alphonsus Ezenwanne, pleaded guilty.

Both Umeibe and Ezenwanne were arrested at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu State.

On 14 February 2022, a video clip of Kyari negotiating the release of seized cocaine was released to the press by the NDLEA. Kyari was seen offering a $61,000 bribe in cash to an NDLEA agent.

Earlier, he had been embroiled in a fraud scandal involving Popular fraudster Ramon Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi.

Hushpuppi is currently facing charges of money laundering in the United States.

Cocaine Deal: Court declines Abba Kyari’s bail request

The Federal High Court in Abuja, on Monday, declined a bail request by Abba Kyari, Deputy Commissioner of Police and former head of the IGP Intelligence Response Team (IRT), who is being held by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), over his alleged involvement in the 25 kg cocaine deal.

Aba Kyari’s lawyer, Cynthia Ikenna, argued the ex parte application on health grounds on Monday 21st of February, 2022.

The trial judge, Inyang Ekwo, Aba Kyari’s lawyer, Cynthia Ikena, based her client’s request for bail on health grounds.

Ruling on the application, the trial judge, Inyang Ekwo, ordered the applicant to put the NDLEA on notice.

The judge adjourned the suit until February 24, for a hearing.

“My client is diabetic and hypertensive,” Ms Ikena told journalists shortly after the suit was adjourned on Monday.

The NDLEA had on February 14, confirmed that the embattled Kyari was in its custody after it declared the cop wanted for allegedly aiding and abetting drug pushing and running his own drug cartel.

The declaration by the NDLEA came a few months after the former police intelligence unit commander was indicted in an internet fraud case by a U.S. court.
