Arraignment of $530k scam Suspects: Court clears Road Block

Honourable Justice Dije Aboki of Kano State High Court has granted an application for leave to prefer charge against the duo of Saminu Umar Ta’ambu and Ahmed Maiturare of popular Kantin Kwari Textile Market, Kano City, brought by the EFCC.


The prime suspect, Ta’ambu, was alleged to have approached Mathias Hee, a Swiss National and owner of Okutex, a textile manufacturing company sometimes in July, 2015, requesting for the supply of fabrics totaling $530,000 under the pretence that he acted on behalf of Kano State Government.

He forged documents titled Authorization to transfer to foreign account purported to have been issued and signed by the authorities of the Government of Kano State.


Since the supplies, Ta’ambu failed to honour his part of the bargain and has refused to remit the amount as agreed. The matter has been adjourned to 5th October, 2016, for arraignment.
