Another Politician In Trouble As EFCC Strikes Again
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.
