Maimuna Aliyu Set To Become Anti-corruption Fighter?




Unless Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, takes a second look at the list of the approved members of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offenses Commission (ICPC) and acts decisively, a former director of a financial institution who was earlier indicted for corruption would be on her way to been sworn in as anti-corruption fighter.

Maimuna Aliyu Sanda who was a former Executive Director with Aso Savings and Loans Plc until her exit in 2013 was comprehensively indicted by the office of the Inspector-General of Police who investigated a case of conspiracy, fraudulent diversion and abuse of office lodged against her by her Bank on December 2nd 2015.

In the petition, the bank had complained that Maimuna Aliyu Sanda its ex staff, was enlisted with three landed properties at Jahi District Abuja with all relevant documents for her to sell on behalf the Bank. The petition alleged that Maimuna sold the three plots at N40 million per plot, totaling N120 million and converted the proceeds to her personal use without getting back to her employers who reposed the authority on her.

The bank went further to allege that it discovered other fraudulent transactions carried out by Maimunat the proceeds of which she also converted to personal use. The petition estimated such other transactions at N568.9 million.

In a letter dated 31st May 2017 addressed to the Managing Director of Aso Savings & Loans from the office of the Inspection General Police, signed by Taiwo Oyewale, Team “D” leader, IGP Monitoring Unit, police established that Maimuna truly defrauded her bank as alleged by her employers.

The Police established that Maimuna’s employers actually handed over the relevant documents of the three plots to her to sell on behalf of the bank.

It was discovered by the Police that she eventually sold the three plots to one Vincent Mishelia who was introduced to her by one Babagana Bashir.

The payment was said to have been made to her in the dollar equivalent which was $385, 000 in her office through agent, Babagana Bashir.

Said the report: “The suspect confessed receiving the money but stated she handed over same to one Bilikisu Rimi, a cliam she could not substantiate and Bilikisu has equally refuted.”

In its conclusion, the investigators submitted: “Having considered the adduced facts, it has become glaring that the suspect, Maimuna Aliyu Sanda, former staff of the Bank has fraudulently converted the money totaling N58, 000, 000. 00 to her use. It is recommended that she should be charged to court for fraud and abuse of office, please.”
