EFCC Links Jang to N500m Property in Kaduna

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) said it has traced property worth N500 million to former Plateau State Governor Jonah Jang.

Acting EFCC spokesman Tony Orilade said in a statement on Sunday that the property is located at No. 8 and 9 Gobarau Road Unguwan Rimi GRA Kaduna State.

He said preliminary investigations revealed that the said property were purchased from New Capital Properties Limited, a subsidiary of Northern Nigerian Development Company (NNDC), Kaduna.

He noted that the EFCC on May 7, 2018 filed a 12-count charge against Jang for an alleged fraud of about N6.3bn.

Jang, now a senator representing Plateau-North, is being prosecuted before a Plateau State High Court over allegations of embezzling special funds released to the state by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

He is also being accused of abuse of office as the governor by collecting money to the tune of N4.3bn from the state coffers through the cashier of the Office of the Secretary to the State Government, Yusuf Pam.
