The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has declared Gimba Yau Kumo, a son-in-law of President Muhammadu Buhari, wanted over an alleged 65-million-dollar fraud.

Kumo, who got married to Fatima, one of the president’s daughters in 2016, was alleged to have perpetrated the crime alongside one Tarry Rufus and another Bola Ogunsola.

In a statement yesterday, spokesperson of the anti-graft commission, Azuka Ogugua, asked anyone who had information on the whereabouts of the trio to report to the ICPC headquarters or the nearest police station.

Kumo, who served as Managing Director of the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria, under ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, is a graduate of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, and he hails from Gombe State.

The presidency is yet to react to the allegations levelled against him.
