EFCC Traces N.5bn Properties to Ex-Plateau Gov, Jang

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC says it has traced properties worth N500, 000,000 (Five Hundred Million Naira) only to former Plateau State governor, Jonah Jang.
According to a statement issued on Sunday by the Acting Head of Media and Publicity of EFCC, Tony Orilade, the ”properties are located at No. 8 and 9 Gobarau Road Unguwan Rimi GRA Kaduna State.
Orilade said the preliminary investigations revealed that the said properties were purchased from New Capital Properties Limited, a subsidiary of Northern Nigerian Development Company, NNDC, Kaduna.
It would be recalled that the EFCC on May 7, 2018 filed 12 count charges against the immediate past governor for an alleged fraud of about N6.3bn (Six Billion Three Hundred Million Naira).
A serving Senator representing Plateau-North Senatorial District, Jang who is being prosecuted before a Plateau State High Court, allegedly embezzled some special funds released to the state by the Central Bank of Nigeria.
The former governor is also said to have abused his office as the governor by collecting money to the tune of N4.3bn from the state coffers through the cashier of the Office of the Secretary to the State Government, Yusuf Pam.
