Former Governor of Kogi state flees to Escape EFCC wrath
A source reported that the former Governor of Kogi State Abubakar Audu who was declared wanted by the EFCC has found his way to the United State. He was said to have arrived US on Wednesday via London.
The EFCC declared Audu wanted on Wednesday in connection with a case of N4billion theft during his reign as the Governor of Kogi State (from 1999 to 2003).
Audu was said to have ran the Governorship election on the platform of Action Congress Party in December 2011 (which he lost) despite this case.
The EFCC said Mr. Audu ran when some of its officials stormed his house to arrest him on Tuesday December 11
Some claims have also been made that Audu owns about three houses in Washington DC, Maryland and Connecticut.
