A top official of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abubakar Madaki, has been allegedly caught up in massive corruption web..
Sources hinted that Madaki was reportedly indicted for corrupt practices after documents showing huge purchases of properties came up.
Madaki retired as a Superintendent of police in 2009 before he was recalled back by the current EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu.
A Daily Post report indicated that Madaki allegedly acquired several properties worth billions of Naira during his term before retiring and when he was recalled back by Magu.
He allegedly bought a N450 million house in Wuse 2 and another house for a female friend in Wuse zone 4, worth N200 million. He allegedly also bought land worth N10 billion naira in Nasarawa’s state.
He also reportedly acquired the following properties in the last 10 years: January 2014, Madaki allegedly purchased over 60.59 hectares in Angwan Chediya, Karu LGA in Nasarawa state. In February 2010, he allegedly purchased over 61 hectares in Angwan Monday, Karu LGA, Nasarawa state.
In June 2016, Madaki allegedly purchased over 34.38 hectares in Angwan Sarkin Mada along Angwan Chero Road, Karu LGA, Nasarawa state. On August 2016, he allegedly purchased over 16.96 hectares at Gunduma along Madubi road, Karshi development area, Karu, LGC, Nasarawa state.
In total, Madaki allegedly purchased 474 hectares of land, despite being on a police superintendent’s salary. There are words out that the Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Professor Itsey Sagay has been petitioned by concerned staff of EFCC. Sagay has reportedly ordered a probe of the case. EFCC is however yet to confirm that such scandal occurred in it’s organisation.
The EFCC head of media publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, when he was contacted, said he has no knowledge of the case or the incriminating documents. Uwujaren said: “I don’t know of any documents of the acquisitions you are talking about. I only speak on what I know.”
Uwujaren was asked if EFCC would take the due process if any of its officials were to be found guilty of corruption. He replied: “Then the law will take its course. But at this moment, I’m not aware of any document.”
