EFCC to arraign ex-police commissioner for N10 million fraud
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, will on Thursday arraign a retired Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Sambo, before a Federal Capital Territory High Court sitting in Maitama, Abuja, on a one-count charge bordering on criminal breach of trust and obtaining money by false pretence to the tune of N10 million.
Mr. Sambo, who connived with Nuhu Bello Dabai, allegedly duped the complainant, Abdul Malik Bello, Managing Director/ CEO, Ideal Sunbeam International Company Limited.
HP claimed the N10 million was needed to defray both the survey and other preliminary expenses involved in the execution of a contract worth over N1billion purportedly awarded him by Zamfara State Governor, Abdul Aziz Abubakar Yari.
The accused person was subsequently arrested and granted an administrative bail by the Commission on January 19, 2015.
He, however, jumped the bail granted him on April 7, 2015.
After playing hide-and-seek, he was eventually re-arrested on Wednesday, May 3, 2016.
