Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission have nabbed the Vice Chancellor of Federal University Gusau.
A competent source at the anti-graft agency disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday that the vice-chancellor was still being held at the commission’s headquarters in Abuja as at the time of filing this report.
The source further stated that Mr Garba collected the said amount on the pretext that the university was going to award his company a contract worth N3billion for the construction of perimeter wall fence around the institution.
The source said the contract did not materialise and the money was not returned.
“He was detained by the agency on Thursday January 28 after he honoured an invitation in relation to his involvement in a case of abuse of office, corrupt practices and contract scam.
When contacted by NAN Correspondent on the development, spokesman of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed the arrest but declined further comments.
