EFCC Grants Ibrahim Shekarau, Aminu Wali, One Other Bail

Former Kano state Governor Ibrahim Shekarau, Ambassador Aminu Wali and Engineer Mansur Ahmed have been  released on bail today Tuesday after reporting to the Zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes (EFCC) in Kano.

The three were invited in connection with the N950m campaigned fund allegedly shared among PDP members at Shekarau’s residence prior to the conduct of 2015 general elections.

Engineer Ahmed was a former commissioner of works in Kano State and deputy campaign director (north) for the former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

They all arrived the EFCC Zonal office in Kano this afternoon and after questioning were released on self-recognition.

They are expected to be arraigned on Thursday at a Federal High Court in Kano.

Speaking to journalists , Counsel to Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, Barrister Abdullahi Fagge said  the former Education Minister will be arrainged on a six count charge bothering on money laundry and misappropriation of N25m.

Solacebase recalled that in a statement released  earlier on Tuesday by Media Aide of Malam  Ibrahim Shekarau, Sule Ya’u Sule said the EFCC had earlier investigated the former Minister of Education without finding him wanting in 2016.

Solacebase gathered that Malam  Ibrahim Shekarau has expressed interest in contesting 2019 Presidential election.
