The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Ibrahim Magu yesterday said the anti-graft agency was  searching for Jamila Tangaza, a former head of Abuja Geographic Information System (AGIS).

He said the commission is on the lookout for Tangaza, who was being investigated over allegations of financial crimes following reports that she attempted to jump bail and escape the country.

She is being investigated over alleged financial malfeasance to the tune of about N800 million when she served as the director of Abuja AGIS and Senior Special Assistant to the former Federal Capital Territory Minister (FCT), Bala Mohammed. 

In an interview in Abuja yesterday, Magu said he could not confirm she was caught trying to leave the country, because the EFCC had not received formal notification from the Nigeria Immigration Service.

He however said attempts to reach her mobile phone numbers had been unsuccessful.

He also said Tangaza was on administrative bail noting that her surety who stood for her bail has been summoned by the EFCC.
