CBN governor to be arraigned for corruption

*EFCC and Special Fraud Unit operatives establish primae facie case of financial misappropriation

Legal officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC and those of the Police Special Fraud Unit have concluded corruption charges against the suspended CBN, Lamido Sanusi.

Scan News correspondents monitoring the petitions against the suspended CBN governor discovered that operatives of both agencies have been working round the clock for three weeks.

It was gathered that three directors and a few deputy directors separately wrote petitions against Sanusi on alleged financial recklessness and donations that fail to follow the CBN approved regulations.

All the petitions were copied to the members of The National Assembly. It was the receipt of the petition that compelled APC lawmakers to raise alarm of the plot to remove Sanusi.

Our correspondents gathered that other minor petitions from lower staff who raised issues about approvals granted by the suspended CBN that ran contrary to accepted rules of financial expenditure.

Scan News reporters also discovered that the some southern employees and stakeholders of the CBN wrote several petitions over employment lopsidedness under Sanusi.

Investigators handling the numerous petitions against Sanusi interrogated most of the petitioners and they supplied proofs to the agencies.

It was on the premise of the proofs of the alleged financial recklessness supplied by the petitiioners.

A police investigator who spoke under condition of anonymity said that Sanusi refused to cooperate by stating his own side of the story.

With his suspension, the police and EFCC believe they will arrest Sanusi to make his statement on the severe corruption allegations against him.
