Court Remands 2 Whistle Blowers in Prison
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arraigned Buhari Fannami and Ba-Kura Abdullahi before Justice M. T Salihu of the Federal High Court Maiduguri, for allegedly giving false information to the agency under the whistle blowing policy.
Fannami reportedly misled the EFCC with the information about illegally acquired monies purportedly buried at the residence of one Ba’a Lawan at Pompomari Layout along Pompomari Bypass, Maiduguri but the information turned out to be false after the execution of a search warrant.
On his part, Ba-Kura Abdullahi was said to have given false information to the effect that large sum of money in naira and foreign currencies were buried in the residence of Ba’a Lawan.
Fannami and Abdullahi, who were charged separately, pleaded not guilty.
Justice Salihu adjourned the matter to June 7 and 8, 2017 for hearing and ordered the two accused persons to be remanded in the prison custody.
