Former Governor of Kebbi State, Usman Dakingari was yesterday quizzed by the operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over allegations that he laundered N3.8 billion of the state treasury.
The PDP had in separate occasions accused the All Progressives Congress, APC- led government of being selective in the fight against corruption, claiming it is merely witch-hunt PDP members, an allegation which the ruling APC has denied.
The former Kebbi state governor, who arrived the headquarters of the EFCC about 10am, was ushered into the Commission where he was handed over to a crack team of interrogators for questioning. Dakingeri is to explain how N3.8billion allegedly disappeared under his watch as the Chief Executive officer of the state for eight years.
Alhaji Dakingari is an in-law to late Nigerian President, Umaru Musa Yar’dua.
Barely three months ago, the EFCC arrested Dakingari’s wife, Zainab,who was accused of laundering N2billion for her husband.
Dakingari was elected governor of Kebbi state on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party in 2007.
Nigerian Pilot recalled that, the EFCC quizzed the immediate past governor of Benue state, Gabriel Suswam over allegations bordering on misappropriation of N130billion state funds last week Monday and was later released on administrative bail.
Three days later, Senate Minority Leader and former governor of Akwa Ibom state, Senator Godswill Akpabio was quizzed over allegations of laundering the sum of N108 billion.
