EFCC Grills Federal Varsity VC Over Alleged Scam

Published

on

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested the Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University, Gusau, Prof Magaji Garba.

The commission last Thursday detained the VC after honouring an invitation in relation to his involvement in a case of abuse of office, corrupt practices, and contract scam.

A competent source at the anti-graft agency disclosed that the VC, sometime in 2018, fraudulently obtained N260 million from a contractor, Alhaji Shehu Sambo, owner of Ministaco Nigeria Ltd., on the pretext that the university was going to award a contract worth N3 billion for the construction of a perimeter fence to his company.

However, the contract was not awarded prompting Sambo to petition the anti-graft agency.

The source said, “The VC is still being grilled by investigators of the EFCC, who are interested in knowing what happened to the money.”

The EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed the arrest on Monday but did not give further details.
