CSNAC Asks EFCC To Investigate Army General

The Civil Society Network Against Corruption (CSNAC), a coalition of over 150 anti-corruption organizations, has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to immediately investigate a Brigadier General of the Nigerian Army, Umaru Mohammed, over an alleged multi-billion naira fraud.

The petition, which was signed by the coalition’s national chairman, Mr. Olanrewaju Suraju, said CSNAC is availing the anti-graft agency additional materials submitted to the Network by concerned citizens over the alleged fraudulent practices of Mohammed, adding that the Nigerian public is keeping a tab on the investigation as there would be no hiding place for corrupt elements in the society.

Taking the cue of its petition from a November 12, 2016 report of This Day newspaper, the coalition said the online version of the paper revealed that the Nigerian Army and EFCC are currently investigating a serving senior officer and Managing Director of Nigerian Army Properties Limited (NAPL), Brig-Gen. Umaru Mohammed, over allegations of fraud running into billions of Naira.
