Niger Delta Youths Call on President Tinubu to Arrest Malami, Saadiyya Umar Farouk, Hadi Sirika

The Niger Delta Youth Congress, Initiative for Ethics and Value Orientation, Northern Youths Frontiers, National Movement for Democratic Change and 107 Anti-Corruption Crusade Groups, Wednesday called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to immediately order the arrest of former Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister for Justice, Mr Abubarka Malami; former Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Saadiyya Umar Farouk; and former Aviation Minister, Hadi Sirika.

They said trillions of naira of public funds were stolen under the watch of the four ex-ministers.

The groups passed a vote of no confidence in the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and its leadership, alleging that the Chairman of the commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa was put in the saddle by Malami to cover the serial financial misconduct perpetrated in the previous administration.

A joint statement signed by National Convener Niger Delta Youth Congress, Israel Uwejeyan; National Convener Movement for Democratic Change, Godfrey Osolase, and National Convener Initiative for Ethics and Value Orientation, Bello Idowu, demanded that Bawa must step down.
