The former Governor of Kastina state has been declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Commission over an alleged N76bn fraud stolen from the state by his successor Governor Aminu Masari.
According to the spokesperson of the anti-graft agency EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, he said Shema had ignored all invitations by the EFCC.
“The public is hereby notified that Ibrahim Shema, a former Governor of Kastina State, is wanted by the EFCC in connection with a case of criminal conspiracy, inflation of contracts, abuse of office, diversion of funds and embezzlement, running into billions of naira.
“The former governor ignored several invitations by the commission since December 1, 2015, when he was first summoned by the agency. All efforts to locate him at his known addresses in Katsina and Abuja were futile.
“The 59-year-old ex-governor hails from the Dutsena-ma Local Government Area of Katsina State. He is tall, light in complexion and speaks Hausa and English fluently. Anybody, having useful information as to his whereabouts, should contact the commission.”
