Social Member
A member of the House of Representatives representing Bauchi Federal Constituency, Hon Aliyu Gebi has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC. A source at the Commission disclosed that the federal law maker was detained this morning as he reported following an invitation by the Commission,

Gebi is alleged to be facing multiple cases of fraud to the tune of N173million. He allegedly obtained the amount from four different sources with false pretenses.

The source who is familiar with the Commission’s investigation, revealed that Gebi obtained N60 million as loan from one Chinedu Iloabachie ostensibly to pursue his political aspirations with a promise to return the money to his benefactor as soon as he was elected a law maker. After his election, the lawmaker failed to fulfil his promise to refund the money. Six different cheques he issued to Iloabachie were returned unpaid, owing to insufficient fund in his account.
