Alleged N5bn Fraud: Ex-Gombe Gov’s Fate to be decided on Mar 22

Justice Babatunde Quadri of a Federal High Court, sitting in Jos, Plateau State, has fixed March 22, 2019 to rule on the “no-case” submission filed by a former governor of Gombe State, Danjuma Goje.
Goje, a serving Senator, is standing trial along with a former Executive Chairman of the state’s University Basic Education Board, Aliyu El-Nafaty; S.M. Dokoro, and the ex-governor’s cousin, Sabo Tumu for an alleged N5 billion fraud.
They are alleged to have been involved in financial impropriety, including the award of contracts for food supply to the state’s Government House, during his tenure.
The EFCC had through its counsel closed its case against them, on May 31, 2018 after calling 25 witnesses and tendering several documents to prove its case.
