The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), will on Thursday, May 12, 2016 arraign a retired Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Sambo, before a FCT High Court.
A statement by the EFCC, signed by the HEad Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwajuren, said he will be charged with a one-count bordering on criminal breach of trust and obtaining money by false pretence to the tune of N10 million.
Sambo, who allegedly connived with one Nuhu Bello Dabai, had allegedly duped the complainant, Abdul Malik Bello, Managing Director/ CEO, Ideal Sunbeam International Company Limited, the sum of N10 million.
The defendant allegedly claimed that he needed to defray both the survey and other preliminary expenses involved in the execution of a contract worth over N1 billion purportedly awarded him by Zamfara State Governor, Abdul Aziz Abubakar Yari.
The accused person was subsequently arrested and granted an administrative bail by the Commission on January 19, 2015.
He, however, jumped the administrative bail granted him on April 7, 2015.
After playing hide-and-seek, he was eventually re-arrested on Wednesday, May 3, 2016.
