Former Chairman of the House Committee on Appropriation, Abdulmumin Jibrin, has accused the Nigeria Youth Congress of Nigeria of forging an account document with ING Bank with Essex address and balance of €1.3 million in his name.
The group had claimed that Jibrin operated the foreign account with ING Bank in the United Kingdom.
However, Jibrin, in his reaction, alleged that the account was fake.
He denied having such account or balance, adding that the story is just the propaganda arranged by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, through his Deputy Chief of Staff, Hon. C.I.D. Madueabum.
Jibrin vowed to report the Youth Congress to Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
He said: “My attention has been drawn to a widely circulated report that I own an account with ING bank UK with Essex adress and balance of £1.3m.
“The document is FAKE, I DO NOT own such account or balance neither do I have anything what so ever to do with the said address at Essex.
“This blackmail is part of a wider propaganda arranged by the desperate Speaker Dogara through his Deputy Chief of Staff Hon CID Maduebum.
“Hon Maduebum recruited & paid 20million naira to one Ifeanyi Okonkwo & Ikenga Ugochinyere of a shadow youth organisation to do the hatched jobs.
“You will recall that the same group went to town with the allegations of 17 billion and 418 million naira which all turned out a fluke.
“Ahead of resumption of the House, they are back at work to divert attention from allegations of budget fraud and corruption against Mr Speaker
“The plan is to create credibility problem for me as I release more revelations on Mr Speaker that will send shock down the spines of Nigerians.
“It is curious that all the allegations on me are made by faceless or shadow groups,no Member of the House has signed any allegation on me.
“I am calling on the relevant authorities to investigate & take decisive action on this latest assault on my person & unveil the real sponsors
“I will be reporting these hatchet men to the police & EFCC this morning & my lawyers are taking the necessary legal actions. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!”
