This was announced in a notice signed by Azuka Ogugua, spokesperson of the ICPC, on Thursday.
According to the anti-graft agency, Kumo, who married Buhari’s daughter, Fatima, in 2016, is declared wanted alongside Tarry Rufus and Bola Ogunsola over alleged misappropriation and dispersion of national housing funds.
The notice read: “The persons whose pictures appear above, Mr. Tarry Rufus, Mr. Gimba Yau Kumo and Mr. Bola Ogunsola, are hereby declared WANTED by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) in connection with issues bordering on misappropriation of National Housing Funds and diversion of the sum of Sixty Five Million dollars ($65,000,000).
“Anyone who has useful information on their whereabouts should report to ICPC Headquarters Abuja, any of the ICPC State Offices or the nearest police station.”
Just a week after his marriage to President Buhari’s daughter, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) invited Kumo over a N3 billion fraud he allegedly committed as Managing Director of Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria.
The Senate Committee on Public Accounts had in April summoned Kumo to explain his role over the same matter.
