Fake NEMA contract lands Liman in EFCC’s net
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC has arrested one Dogara Liman for offences bordering on obtaining money by false pretence.
A statement issued by the commission media office on Thursday said the suspect was arrested by operatives of the EFCC in Kaduna.
‘’The suspect, sometime in March 2014, allegedly obtained the sum of N5million from a victim on the pretext of financing a contract purportedly awarded to him by the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, through TET Fund, ‘’said the statement.
‘’He lured his victim with a promise of N1.5million return on investment but once the victim lodged the N5m into his account, he diverted the money to offset a loan.’’
‘’All efforts by the victim to retrieve his money from him failed,’’
”The suspect will soon be charged to court.”
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Abuja confirmed the arrest and detention of the former Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki.
Mr Wilson Uwujaren, the spokesperson of the commission, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that Saraki was invited for questioning over allegations of corruption and money laundering.
He said the former senate president was currently in the custody of the commission for continuation of interrogation.
