The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has traced properties worth N500, 000,000 (Five Hundred Million Naira) only to former Plateau State governor, Jonah Jang.

The properties are located at No. 8 and 9 Gobarau Road Unguwan Rimi GRA Kaduna State, as the EFCC preliminary investigations revealed that the said properties were purchased from New Capital Properties Limited, a subsidiary of Northern Nigerian Development Company, NNDC, Kaduna.

It would be recalled that the EFCC on May 7, 2018, filed 12 count charges against the immediate past governor, Jonah Jang for an alleged fraud of about N6.3bn (Six Billion Three Hundred Million Naira).

Jonah Jang is a serving Senator representing Plateau-North Senatorial District, and he is being prosecuted before a Plateau State High Court, allegedly embezzled some special funds released to the state by the Central Bank of Nigeria.

The former governor, Jonah Jang is also said to have abused his office as the governor by collecting money to the tune of N4.3bn from the state coffers through the cashier of the Office of the Secretary to the State Government, Yusuf Pam.

One of the count charges revealed that the former governor was allegedly diverted N2bn released by the CBN for disbursement to Small and Medium Enterprises in the state under the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Funds, just a month before the expiration of his tenure in April 2015.
