The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission says it will on Tuesday arraign Mrs. Maimuna Aliyu, the mother of Maryam Sanda who allegedly killed her husband, Bilyamin Bello.
The police had last week arraigned Maryam before an FCT High Court sitting in Jabi for allegedly killing her husband who is the son of a former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Haliru Bello.
Co-incidentally, her mother will also be arraigned in a Jabi High Court.
The ICPC said in a statement that Maimuna, who is a former Executive Director of Aso Savings and Loans Ltd, will be arraigned on charges of corruption.
Maimuna was also appointed as a member of the ICPC board by the then acting President Yemi Osinbajo in August but was later dropped after it was discovered that she had been indicted.
The ICPC said,
“The ICPC is due to arraign Mrs. Maimuna Aliyu, former Executive Director of Aso Savings and Loans Ltd as well as dropped nominee for Board Member, ICPC. The arraignment is set to take place on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 before Justice M.A Nasir of High Court 16 Jabi, Abuja.
“Mrs Aliyu allegedly sold off three plots of land 2432; 2433; and 2434 in Cadastral Zone B08, Jahi District, Abuja, on behalf of Aso Savings and Loans Ltd at the cost of N57m without remitting same to the bank.
“She is also believed to have made false statement to officials of ICPC all contrary to Sections 19 and 25(1) (a) & (b) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act, 2000; and Section 311 of the Penal Code Act, Cap 532, Laws of Northern Nigeria 1990.” (Punch)
