The son-in-law of President Buhari, Gimba Yau Kumo, has been declared wanted by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offenses Commission (ICPC) over an alleged N24.7 Billion fraud.
Azuka Ogugua, spokesperson of the anti-graft commission, stated in a publication that Gimba Kumo was wanted along with two others over alleged misappropriation and dispersion of national housing funds.
In April, the senate committee on public accounts summoned Kumo, the then managing director of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria, to explain the alleged irregular award of N3 billion contract when he was still at the bank.
Kumo married President Buhari’s daughter, Fatima, in 2016 in a lavish ceremony held at Katsina State.
He is said to be at large.
