Jibrin Fears for His life, Flees Nigeria

Abdulmumin Jibrin, the suspended member of the House of Representatives, has gone on exile. The lawmaker who fled to London last week to receive an award and take his anti-graft campaign to the global community, vowed not to return to the country unless his saftey is assured.

According to him, the deicision to flee the country was based on threats he has contined to recieve from some of his colleagues whom he accused of budget padding.

“The situation currently at hand is different from the initial stage of the crisis. The silence of the presidency is no longer sending the right message to Nigerians and the international community,” he said.

The lawmaker added that over 2,000 fraudulent projects worth over N284 billion were inserted into 2016 budget, continuing that such scandal never happened in the history of the Nigerian legislature.

Jibrin accused Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara and some principal members of the House of padding the budget to the tune of N40bn.
