Buhari’s Son Arrested By EFCC For Fraud: Mohammed Duped Woman Of N20 Million
May 18, 2014 – General Buhari’s Son Arrested By EFCC For Fraud: Mohammed Duped Woman Of N20M In Oil Investment
Former Nigerian Military President, Gen. Mohammadu Buhari’s adopted son, Mohammed Buhari is currently in EFCC detention for his involvement in a N20 million fraud.
Mohammed allegedly took 20 million naira from a woman identified as Florence Nwokocha, purportedly to invest in a lucrative oil and gas business with promises of mouth watery returns to the investor. Buhari was allegedly introduced to the lady by his account officer at Ecobank Plc and he agreed to pay Nwokocha, 30 percent annual interest on the sum.
But once the money was transferred, Buhari cleaned out the account but never paid any interest to the woman.
EFCC sources disclosed that Mohammed claims he got into trouble after he lost the bank guarantee which he secured from another new generation bank. The bank, he claims, voided the guarantee on the ground that the branch of the bank that processed it was not competent to do so.
Mohammed Buhari is currently in EFCC detention as investigations continue.
His dad, General Buhari is yet to make any statement on the alleged fraud case.
