220 flats including four guns and ammunition have been seized by the ICPC belonging to the aide to the ex-Governor of Bauchi State, Isa Yuguda.
The Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Offences Commission has seized 220 flats, located in 20 estates, allegedly belonging to one Sanusi Mohammed, a former aide to ex-Governor Isa Yuguda of Bauchi State.
Also, about 165 rounds of ammunition, a pump action rifle and other weapons were found in some of Mohammed’s properties located at GRA, Bauchi. The shocking discovery was made following a tip-off by a whistle-blower, Punch reported.
He said, “About 10 days ago, we received a tip-off from a whistle-blower about the lifestyle of one Sanusi Mohammed, a former aide to former Bauchi Governor, Isa Yuguda.
“We traced 220 flats in 20 estates to him. The houses range from two-bedroom to three-bedroom flats. Inside some of the properties, we discovered four sophisticated guns with 165 rounds of ammunition, five exotic cars and 15 new air conditioners.
“We believe the air conditioners were donated to the Bauchi State Government by China.
“We also recovered some cash as well as 25 designer watches and 20 bales of brocade.”
The ICPC arrested and quizzed Mohammed but was later released on administrative bail. When contacted on the telephone by Punch, the spokesperson for the ICPC, Mrs. Rasheedat Okoduwa, said she could not speak on the matter.
She said, “According to the ICPC Act, we are not allowed to divulge details of investigation. I cannot deny or confirm any story. In any case, anyone who is under investigation is presumed innocent until proved otherwise.”
