EFCC arraigns ex-Minister’s son over 419

Mohammed Umar, a 39-year-old son of Nigeria’s first Internal Affairs Minister has been arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) before a Jos High court on a three-count charge involving advance fee fraud (419).

Presided over by Justice Yakubu Dakwak of High Court 6, Umar was also arraigned along side Mustapha Waziri, a staff of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Bauchi State office.

In an interview with newsmen at the Gombe Zonal Office of the EFCC, the suspect said: "I am sure only an insane or fool born and swimming in billions with over 100 state of the art houses spread across country could subscribe to activities of 419".

Looking unperturbed during the parley with newsmen, Umar, who claimed to be an international businessman in fairly used vehicles popularly called "Kotonu Vehicles" said; he inherited N3 billion, cash in a bank account and over 100 houses spread across the country.

He also claimed that he realises millions of naira daily from the sale of vehicles and he spends 95 per cent of his time abroad in pursuit of his business. He said his name was dragged into the matter by a man he had trusted much and who he had granted so much concession and freedom.

How can this guy have inherited the sum of 3 billion naira and over 100 houses in a country where millions are hungry and homeless. That alone should make hi,m a candidate for kirikiri. I bet his father is one of those that have looted and milked this country dry.
