The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has taken before a Yola high court a former Commissioner in Adamawa State, Sanda Lamurde, for allegedly misappropriating N379 million meant to feed internally displaced persons (IDPs).
He allegedly misappropriated the money, precisely N379,500,000, while in that capacity as chairman of the IDPs welfare committee.
He was taken before the State High Court on a 21-count charge of criminal breach of trust, forgery and using fake documents.
Overall, the EFCC charged him for diverting N379,500,000 meant to buy food items for IDPs in Adamawa State when their welfare was placed in his hands.
The presiding judge of the state High Court, Justice Nathan Musa, adjourned the case to April 16 for commencement of hearing and granted the accused bail.
