EFCC DRILLS HON JUBRIL FOR 5 HOURS OVER BUDGET PADDING ALLEGATIONS



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Tuesday grilled Jibrin as part of investigation into the budget padding allegations.

It was learnt that Jibrin spent over five hours at the EFCC office, explaining to investigators how the 2016 budget was allegedly padded by Dogara; the Deputy Speaker, Yusuff Lasun; the Chief Whip, Alhassan Ado-Doguwa; the Minority Leader, Leo Ogor, and nine others.

An EFCC operative, who confirmed Jibrin’s visit, said, “Jibrin came to our office to honour an invitation. His petition was voluminous and we needed clarification. He submitted more documents before leaving. We told him that we could call him again at any time.

“Based on the allegations and documents he submitted, we will invite other lawmakers, especially Dogara, and members of the appropriations committee.”

The source said Jibrin also promised to bring more documents to support his allegations.
