A former Commissioner of Local Government in Niger State, Kantigi Liman might soon be declared wanted after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission traced a further N2billion into his United Bank for Africa account.
Recall that about 4billion naira had earlier been traced to the politician’s account or to that of companies linked to him. The Commission had weeks earlier traced N4billion to two accounts in GTBank, both linked to Liman. The first account belongs to Sadiq Air Travel Agency Limited and the second to Kantigi.
Sources at the Commission, however, disclosed that the politician who was a governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2015 election has been elusive. “He is on the run and all efforts to track him down have been futile. The next option left for the Commission is to declare him wanted,” the source said.
The source further disclosed that investigations so far points in the direction, that the funds were siphoned from the local government joint account of Niger State and the Commission desperately wants Liman, to confront him with the available evidence. He is believed to rake in a monthly interest of over N33million on the fixed deposits.
