EFCC begins a manhunt for 46-year-old Nigerien ‘scammer’ who allegedly duped the Nigerian Army to the tune of over $394million (N152, 315, 803, 981), Euro9.9million (N4, 539, 509, 271) and N369million.

Nigeria’s Anti-Graft Agency, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has launched a manhunt for a foreigner, 46-year-old Nigerien Aboubakar Hima who allegedly scammed the Nigerian Army to the tune of N157 billion over supplies of military wares.

The EFCC said that its men are out with a Wanted Person poster for the military contractor who allegedly defrauded the Nigerian Army in an equipment-supply contract worth over N157, 224, 313, 252.

According to the poster issued by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the suspect identified as Aboubakar Hima is wanted in a case of criminal conspiracy contract scam, misappropriation of public funds, money laundering and fraud to the tune of over $394million (N152, 315, 803, 981), Euro9.9million (N4, 539, 509, 271) and N369million.

Tony Orilade, the EFCC spokesman further stated on the poster: “The suspect, who is the Chief Executive Officer of Societe D’Equipment Internationaux, SEI, is alleged to have received the sums for the purchase of equipment for the Nigerian Military. However, investigations have revealed discrepancies in the supply of the equipment.

“Having failed to honour invitations from the Commission, Hima is currently evading investigation, thus the need to declare him wanted.”
