EFCC Uncovers Fresh N2bn In Ex-Guber Aspirant’s Account

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) may declare a former governorship aspirant and commissioner of Local Government in Niger state, Kantigi Liman, wanted after a further N2 billion, which was traced to his United Bank for Africa account by the agency.
According to the EFCC source, who revealed this, the discovery brings to N6 billion funds traced to accounts held by the politician and companies linked to him.
A source at the Commission however disclosed that the politician who was a governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2015 election has been elusive.
“He is on the run and all efforts to track him down have been futile.
The next option left for the Commission is to declare him wanted,” the source said.
The source further disclosed that investigations so far points in the direction, that the funds were siphoned from the local government joint account of Niger State and the Commission desperately wants Liman, to confront him with the available evidence.
He is believed to rake in a monthly interest of over N33million on the fixed deposits.
Recall that the Commission had weeks earlier, traced N4 billion to two accounts in GTBank, both linked to Liman. The first account belongs to Sadiq Air Travel Agency Limited and the second to Kantigi.
