Following the arrest warrant issued by Justice M. N. Yunusa of the Federal High Court, Lagos, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared the trio of Jude Benjamin Amanze, Chinelo Nwigwe and David Nwigwe wanted.
The trio were aides of Dr. Chimaroke Nnamadi during his tenure as Governor of Enugu state, between 1999 and 2007.
According to Guardian News, a statement issued on Wednesday by the EFCC Head, Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, read that they are wanted in connection with the case instituted against the former governor of Enugu State, Dr. Chimaroke Nnamani, who is alleged to have diverted public funds and embezzled billions of naira as governor of the state from 1999 to 2007.
Amanze, who was his special aide, is alleged to have served as a conduit in siphoning over N514 million belonging to the Enugu State Government. EFCC investigation revealed that a road construction contract awarded to one Chief Jacob Nwatu between 2002 and 2003 was not executed, yet N514 million was paid for it but traced to Nwatu’s Zenith Bank account.
