Katsina State Government has presented a memo before the Katsina State Judicial Commission of Inquiry alleging diversion of N8.6 billion by a immediate past governor, Alhaji Ibrahim Shema, and other top officials.

Mr Hassan Liman, SAN, counsel to the commission, stated this on Monday during the sitting of the commission.

Liman,  said the amount was diverted from the accounts of the Ministry of Environment, Department of Community Development, Special Duties, Girl-child Education and the Department of Almajirai Affairs.

He explained that available records showed that the funds were allegedly diverted by the former governor and other government officials.

According to him, there was no evidence  on how the funds were utilized during the period under review.

Liman, however, told the  commission that the former governor had filed a case before the Court of Appeal, Kaduna, on infringement of his fundamental human rights.

He asked the commission to adjourn the sitting pending the determination of the case.

The commission also adjourned the hearing of memo on activities of Katsina Road Maintenance Agency (KASROMA) and Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs pending the determination of the appeal case before the Court of Appeal.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Gov. Aminu Masari, inaugurated the commission to investigate how some funds were lost during Shema’s tenure and to advise the government accordingly.
