N23bn Diezani Poll Cash: Umahi In Trouble by DAVECENA(m): 4:09am On Nov 12, 2016
THE Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, is in trouble with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

The commission said last night it had discovered that Umahi collected the sum of N400 million allocated to the PDP in the state to compromise last year’s Presidential poll but he diverted the cash to two of his companies and used it to build two hotels in Port Harcourt and Abakiiki.

The commission has already arrested and questioned many suspects, including bank officials, who have made statements linking the governor and his companies.

EFCC sources said, “This case involving some chieftains of the PDP in Ebonyi State and some companies emanated from the alleged N23,2999,705,000, disbursed by the erstwhile Petroleum Resources Minister, Mrs Diezani Alison Madueke during the 2015 Presidential election out of which N400million was traced to Ebonyi State.

“In the State, Kelechi Igwe (incumbent Deputy Governor ), Fidelis Nwanwko and Ambassador Frank N. Ogbuewu collected the money to prosecute the 2015 general election.

“The duo of Fidelis Nwankwo and Ambassador Frank N. Ogbuewu were invited and they disclosed that they collected the N400million from Fidelity Bank and handed it over to Access Bank on the directive of the then Deputy Governor who is now the incumbent Governor, Engr. David Umahi. “The Operations Manager of Access Bank Abakaliki was invited and he revealed that the money was paid into the accounts of Osborn La-Palm Royal Resort Ltd and Brass Engineering & Construction Nig. Ltd. domiciled in Abakaliki.

“The statement of the accounts of the companies that were analysed disclosed that the sum of three N300million was paid into the account of Osborn La-Palm Royal Resort Ltd and N100 million into the account of Brass Engineering & Construction Nig. Ltd and subsequently withdrawn by Chinyere Egwuche.

“The movement of the fund from one account to another and the subsequent cash withdrawal of N300million in tranches of N50million are clear features of money laundering.

“The above companies were discovered to have been incorporated by the incumbent Governor of Eonyi State in 1993 and 2011 respectively.
“Consequently, letters of invitation were written to the Managing Directors of the companies where the money was paid but the letters were returned undelivered as the addressees refused to collect them.

“Thereafter, Austin Umahi, Maxwell Umahi, Chinyere Egwuche and Mabel Dikibo were arrested. Investigation revealed that Chinyere Egwuchu and Mabel Dikibo were the signatories to the account of the companies.

“It was also discovered that one of the suspects, Chinyere withdrew the N300million paid into the account of Osborn La-Palm which, according to her was used to further construction of Osborn La-Palm hotels in Abakaliki, Uburu and Port Harcourt, while the N100million paid into the account of Brass Engineering and Construction Nigeria Limited was transferred to a certain David Umahi Faith Foundation. They volunteered statement and were released on bail to reliable sureties.

“In furtherance of this investigation, the property belonging to the companies were identified and the Commission’s stickers “Under Investigation” were placed on them. However, legal machineries are being set in motion to seal the companies in case the suspects refused to wholly refund the monies that were fraudulently collected by them.”

In the meantime, the sum of N90million has been refunded. Investigation is still in progress,” a top EFCC official confirmed.

The introduction of the BVN is one of the major landmarks that has given the efcc in-road in the fight against corruption.

Imagine how it has exposes the cocky and dubious transfer of funds by politicians to account of close allies.
Most painfully the transfer was done with the exclusion & detriment of those "far-aways" who come online daily to support this show of shame.

Corrupt soul, it's not Buhari or EFCC that will jail your benefactor looters.
It's the job of Judiciary which has been exposed to have so many corrupt judges.

While working to get rid of bad eggs in the Judiciary, the govt of the day will make sure no respite for those looters. Deal with that reality boy!

This is becoming boring....

He diverted the money he was supposed to use to compromise the presidential election and paved ways for Buhari to win and he's sending his dogs after him?

Well...

Until he forge ahead and start reconstructing this country.... Buhati remains a failure!

GEJ brought BVN into the financial sector.

GEJ fought corruption systematically as against the herdsmen approach by Bubu..
