Ex-Police CommissionerTo Face Trial Over N10m Fraud

Xavier Ndanyongmong

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), will today arraign a retired Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Sambo, before a Federal Capital Territory High Court sitting in Maitama, Abuja  on one-count charge bordering on criminal breach of trust and obtaining money by false pretence.

He is alleged to have obtained from his victim, some N10 million under false pretense.

Sambo, was alleged to have connived with one Nuhu Bello Dabai, and allegedly duped  Managing Director/CEO, Ideal Sunbeam International Company Limited, Abdul Malik Bello,  of the sum of N10,, after claiming that he needed to defray both the survey and other preliminary expenses involved in the execution of a contract worth over N1bn purportedly awarded him by Zamfara State Governor, Abdul Aziz Abubakar Yari.

The accused person was subsequently arrested and granted an administrative bail by the Commission on January 19, 2015.

He, however, jumped the administrative bail granted him on April 7, 2015.

He was eventually re-arrested on Wednesday, May 3, 2016, said the EFCC.
