- Advertisment -

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested two Chinese nationals, Mr. Meng Wei Kun and Mr. Xu Koi, for offering its operatives a bribe of N100m.
The bribe was offered to Mr. Abdullahi Lawal, Sokoto Zonal Head of the EFCC.

The bribe was offered to compromise an ongoing investigation of a construction company, China Zhonghao Nig. Ltd, handling of contracts awarded by the Zamfara State Government in the sum of N50bn between 2012 and 2019, according to the anti-graft agency.

“Alarmed by the consistency and professionalism of investigation being conducted, the company reached out to Lawal with an offer of N100,000,000 ( One Hundred Million Naira) as bribe to “bury” the matter.

“In a grand design to trap the corrupt officials, Lawal played along, and on Monday, two representatives of the company Meng Wei Kun and Xu Kuoi offered him cash totaling fifty million naira in their office along airport road, Sokoto. The cash was offered as a first installment,” the EFCC said.

The zonal office of the commission is investigating the construction company, in connection with the execution of contracts for the construction of township roads in Gummi, Bukkuyun, Anka and Nassarawa towns of Zamfara state.
The EFCC is also investigating the construction of 168 solar- powered boreholes in the 14 local government areas of the state
