EFCC Drags Babangida Aliyu, Tanko To Appeal Court Over Alleged N4 Billion Fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has approached the Court of Appeal to set aside a no-case ruling granted on December 7, 2023, to a former governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu and former chairman of the PDP in the state, Tanko Beji, by a lower court over an alleged N4 billion fraud.

This was contained in a statement by the EFCC spokesperson, Dele Oyewale, on Thursday in Abuja.

The commission filed a fresh seven-count charge, accusing Beji, Aliyu, and former Commissioner for Environment and Chief of Staff, Umar Mohammed Nasko, of conspiracy, abetment, and criminal breach of trust before Justice Aliyu Mayaki (now retired).

The EFCC, disagreeing with the court’s decision on Aliyu and Beji’s no-case submission, submitted a Notice of Appeal on January 10, 2024, firmly believing that a prima facie case had been proven against them.

He added that the commission was optimistic that the Court of Appeal would do justice to the appeal.
