Kaduna Assembly Indicts El-Rufai, Aides In Alleged N423bn Fraud

The Kaduna State House of Assembly committee has indicted former Governor Nasir el-Rufai and several of his aides for allegedly siphoning over N423 billion of the state’s resources from 2015 to 2023.

The House also asked the incumbent governor, Uba Sani, to refer those indicted, including former commissioners for finance, heads of agencies, and accountants-general who served during the period under review, to relevant security agencies for further investigation.

Presenting the report during a plenary sitting, the chairman of the 13-member ad hoc committee and the Deputy Speaker of the House, Magaji Henry Danjuma, said most of the loans obtained under the El-Rufai administration were not used for their intended purposes.

He said due process was not followed in securing both domestic and foreign loans.
