“The zone was directed by the Chairman in June to look into a complaint about diversion and fraudulent schemes involving the distribution of Petroleum Products during the last crisis in the country.

“Our investigation into the cyclical, bridging and retail schemes yielded a refund of over N54.3 billion to government by credit marketers who collected products, sold them but refused to remit the monies,” he said.

The EFCC zonal head commended President Muhammadu Buhari for providing the political will to fight corruption and all forms of fraudulent manifestations in national life.

“On a daily basis, hitherto ‘untouchables’ and ‘sacred cows’ are being investigated and some undergoing prosecution.

“Our media department is liaising with states under the zone, using NYSC outreach programmes, to enlighten and foster the needed ant-corruption culture to build integrity among our citizens,” he added.

NAN reports that Kano zone comprises Jigawa, Kano, Katsina, Kaduna, Kebbi, Sokoto and Zamfara states. (NAN).
