Former Governor of Katsina State, Alhaji Ibrahim Shema, recently declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has submitted himself at the Abuja head office of the Commission. He is still being held as at the time of filing this report.
A statement yesterday by his spokesman, Oluwabusola Olawale said: “As further proof to the fact that the former Governor of Katsina State, His Excellency Ibrahim Shehu Shema is not into hiding as claimed by EFCC in its statement on Wednesday 14th September 2016, he has voluntarily walked into EFCC headquarter around 9:30 am on Friday 16th, September 2016.”
He added that: “We have reiterated it on different occasions that the former Governor Ibrahim Shehu Shema has nothing to fear and he is ever ready to defend himself, but he should not be subjected to political and media trial.”
Olawale said “all he wants is fairness, justice and equity in accordance to the rule of law. Former Governor Shema left Katsina State as a debt-free state despite the massive infrastructural development during his eight year tenure.”
