EFCC arraigns Bauchi governor-elect, Bala Mohammed over bribe

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is set to arraign Bauchi State Governor-elect Mallam Bala Mohammed today over bribery charges leveled against him by the anti-graft body.

Mohammed, who is waiting to be sworn in on May 29, 2019, will today (Monday) face bribery charges at the Federal Capital Territory High Court, Abuja, preferred against him by the EFCC.

The anti-graft body accused Mohammed of accepting as bribe houses located at No 2599 & 2600 Cadastral Zone, AO4 Asokoro District, Abuja, from Aso Savings & Loans Plc in 2014, contrary to Section 18 (b) of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act 2000 and punishable under Section 18 (d).

In the course of filing his asset declaration form at the EFCC, Mohammed was also alleged to have made a false statement to the investigating officer, an offence the EFCC said is contrary to Section 27 (3) (a) of the EFCC (Establishment) Act 2004 and punishable under Section 27 (3)
