|Ex-governor of Sokoto State, Atahiru Bafarawa|
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is on the trail of a former governor of Sokoto State, Atahiru Bafarawa, for alleged fraud, THISDAY has reported.
Operatives of the commission who were in company of uniformed police officers besieged the Abuja residence of Bafarawa in an abortive attempt to arrest the former governor, who is away on vacation to the United States.
THISDAY could not at press time confirm the reason for the manhunt, as EFCC did not make any official statement on the matter. Spokesperson of the commission, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, when contacted, said he had nothing to say.
Uwujaren who neither confirmed nor denied the development, said: “I cannot say anything about it, I wish to be excused on this.”
