The Kebbi State Government has corrected a publication by a National Daily, Daily Trust, who shared photos of the first wife of Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, Aisha Bagudu, at her daughter’s edible fair, who they called the first lady of Kebbi State.
However in the comment section of the tweet, Kebbi State Government wrote that Dr. Zainab Shinkafi Bagudu is the first lady of the State. The tweet reads;
Pls correct the publication. Dr. Zainab Shinkafi Bagudu is the officially recognized First lady.
This is coming after a Twitter user @jacksonpbn disclosed that the Governor of Kebbi State is in a U.S Court, challenging the U.S Govt decision to confiscate $100million of the Abacha loots traced to him.
His tweets reads;
While you are celebrating the return of some of Abacha’s looted funds, Gov Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State and his families are in a U.S Court challenging the U.S Govt decision to confiscate $100million of the Abacha loots traced to him, according to U.S States Dept!
I didnt start dealing with the U.S State Dept today. It was same me who went to them over Atiku Bagudu, the Gov of Kebbi State who is still fighting the U.S Govt over $100million of Abacha loot he helped to loot. If you want info in the U.S, you get it. FOI is very active here!
Folks, if you suspect any foul play between the Nigerian Govt and any U.S entity, reach out to the U.S States Dept thru email, phone or twitter, they would answer you. Some folks are making it seem as if I did anything special reaching out and getting response from U.S State Dept
Bagudu was a known associate of former Nigerian Head of State, General Sani Abacha, who together with Abubakar Atiku Bagudu allegedly systematically looted billions of dollars from the Central Bank of Nigeria and laundered the money overseas (Switzerland) using the U.S. financial institutions, among others.
In 2014, in the US District Court, Washington DC, in the Case No.13-cv-1832-JDB (USA v. All Assets Held in Account Number 80020796), the U.S. Department of Justice (USDOJ) found their (Abacha, Bagudu, at al) companies guilty of money laundering and described the indictment as “the largest kleptocracy case in its history.”
