EFCC Chases A Former State Commissioner in Niger

The federal government resolve to deal mercilessly with the
corruption in the country may have yielded another fruit as the Economic
and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is considering declaring wanted
Kantigi Liman, a former Commissioner of Local Government in Niger State,
for another batch of N2billion traced to his United Bank for Africa
account.
This discovery would bring
total money traced to him and his company to the tune of N6 billion, as
the Commission had weeks earlier traced N4billion to two accounts in
GTBank under the names Sadiq Air Travel Agency Limited and Kantigi
himself.

The declaration may not be unconnected to the
fact that all efforts by the commission to track him down in the past
has futile to answer for investigations into stealing of funds from the
local government joint account of Niger State.

“The
Commission desperately wants Liman, to confront him with the available
evidence,” a source with the EFCC said. “He is believed to rake in a
monthly interest of over N33million on the fixed deposits.”

Kantigi was a was a governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2015 election.
