Photos: Former UMTH Director Loses House To EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday, January 24, 2017, secured the forfeiture of a property located at Plot 114, Gamji Road, New GRA, off Bama Road, Maiduguri, belonging to Mahmud Deji Sambo (also know as Ardo Hamjam), a former Assistant Director (Finance and Account) in the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital, who is being prosecuted on a 3-count charge of stealing by the Commission.

The property was attached pursuant to an order by Justice M.T. Salihu of the Federal High Court of Maiduguri. The property is alleged to have been acquired with the proceeds of a crime.

It will be recalled that Deji and Musti Bukar were arraigned by the EFCC on Wednesday, April 7, 2016 for alleged fraud perpetrated in the finance department of UMTH to the tune of N58m.

They pleaded not guilty to the charges. So far, the prosecution has called ten witnesses as the trial continues.
