Former Governor of Katsina State, Ibrahim Shema, who was declared wanted on Wednesday by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for allegedly diverting N18 billion of government’s fund to his private account has turned himself in.
Shema reported to EFCC office in Abuja around 9:30 a.m. Friday, reports indicated.
It will be recalled that Recall that the EFCC had said that the ex-governor, a member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was declared wanted after efforts to get him to respond to the allegations through invitations by the EFCC failed.
Shema turned himself in because “he is a law abiding citizen who has absolutely nothing to fear,” his spokesperson, Oluwabusola Olawale, said in a statement.
He added that Shema “went to submit himself to the EFCC even though the agency has not been fair to him in handling his case.”
