There’s a running story to the effect that the ICPC has declared Gimba Yau Kumo “an inlaw of the President” wanted in connection with fraud involving the sum of USD65 million.
Presidency spokesman, Garba Shehu has come out to set the records straight.
He said the person declared wanted by the ICPC is not an inlaw to President Buhari.
While at some point in time the said fugitive from justice had been linked to a family member in marriage, that relationship has ended some years ago.
Mr Shehu said it is therefore unfortunate to bring the Presidents family into this case.
He said the President’s position at all times is that the law be allowed to take its course.
He noted that it is well known of him, President Muhammadu Buhari to not provide any cover for crime, no matter who is involved.
