Controversy trails probe of Kano anti-graft chair, director by CCB, EFCC

The invitation of the chairman of Kano State Public Complaint and Anti-Corruption Commission, Muhyi Rimingado and the agency’s director of Finance by the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB, and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, have generated controversy.

While the CCB summoned Rimingado for questioning, the EFCC has also invited the Director of Finance of the Kano anti-graft agency to Abuja to furnish the agency with relevant transactions involving Rimingado.

A letter of invitation dated August 8, 2023 and signed by the acting deputy director, Cybercrime and other related offences, EFCC, Muhtar Bello, which was seen by our reporter, said financial records of Rimingado from 2019 should be provided by PCACC for necessary action.

It reads, “The Commission is investigating a case in which the need to obtain certain clarification from your office is imperative. In view of the above, you are requested to kindly release the Director of Finance and Accounts to report for an interview with the undersigned through the Team Leader AFF/TC at Plot 301/302 Institution and Research District Jabi, along Airport Road, Abuja on Monday, 29th August, 2023 by 1000hours.
