Niger State Government, today, invaded the Tunga private residence of the immediate past Governor of the state, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu where it recovered different car models believed to have been stolen from the state government at the tail end of the former Governor’s tenure.
Information reaching Greenbarge Reporters indicated that the former governor is currently outside the country.
It was gathered that some staff from the Transport Office, Government House went to the former governor’s house and ordered to be allowed access to the automobiles including; his personal car; three Mercedes cars, two Range Rovers and a bullet-proof SUV.
The Chief of Staff in Government House, Minna, Al-amin Mikhail Bmitosahi who is said to have ordered the evacuation of the cars parked inside the former Governors’ house also directed that similar choice car in the possession of the former governors’ younger brother, Mohammed Aliyu (Chiroma) be recovered.
The action of the state government has however generated controversy, particularly on the fact that, the government seems not interested in extending similar fate to the former Deputy Governor, Ahmed Ibeto, who defected to the All Progressive Congress (APC) at the tail end of the immediate past administration.
While many see claims that the Deputy Governor to Babangida Aliyu followed due process in possessing the number of automobiles in his fleet, others believed Ibeto is being shielded because he worked to ensure victory for the party. [myad]
