Following the viral news that hit the internet yesterday that an in-law to the President of Nigeria named Gimba Yau Kumo has been declared wanted by the anti-corruption agency; Independent Corrupt Practices and related offences Commission (ICPC) for fraud of 30 billion naira, the presidency has now dissociated itself from the person involved.



A statement issued by presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, on Friday night informed that the relationship between Kumo and the president’s daughter ended some years ago.

“While at some point in time the said fugitive from justice had been linked to a family member in marriage, that relationship has ended some years ago,” Garba said.

Reacting to what he called a running story to the effect that the ICPC has declared “an in-law of the president” wanted in connection with the fraud, he said: “This should normally be an affirmation that our anti-corruption agencies/institutions are truly independent and allowed unfettered freedom by the President. Which in fact, is the case.

“That a state institution can issue such is a measure of the administration’s commitment to accountability, equality and justice.

“To set the records straight, the person declared wanted by the ICPC is not an in-law to President Buhari.”
