An anti-corruption unit has alleged that it has uncovered five foreign bank accounts operated by the embattled member of the House of Representatives.

In an official petition signed by Ifeanyi Okonkwo, dated November 30 and addressed to Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the house of representatives, the anti-corruption unit of the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) says it has uncovered five foreign bank accounts operated by Abdulmumin Jibrin, suspended member of the house of representatives.
 
According to an exclusive report, the petition, which was also sent to Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC); and Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation, called for a fresh investigation into Jibrin over the said findings, adding that No: 81 Cotswold Gardens, London, NW2 1PE was the address used by Jibrin to open the bank accounts.
 
The sort codes and bank accounts numbers uncovered are;
1. Barclays Bank International Account, SC 204744 AC 33471268
2. Barclays Bank Reserve Account, SC 204744 AC 43707164
3. Barclays Bank Mortgage Account, SC 204744 AC 94030664
4. Barclays Bank Euro Currency Account SC 204744 AC 52339433
5. Barclays Bank USD currency Account, SC 204744 AC 74521222.
 
Furthermore, Okonkwo, the coordinator of the anti-corruption unit of the NYCN, said the fifth schedule, paragraph 3 1999 constitution as amended provides that legislators are part of the category of public officers who should not operate a bank account outside the country.
 
Quote
“From the copy of the (Code of Conduct Bureau) form, it was revealed that Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin declared he owns only one house — a 4-bedroom bungalow in Kaduna, which he bought in 2008 for 150 million; furniture of 2.5 million for the N150 million house; one car, which he bought in the same 2008 for 15 million. Meanwhile, he claims in the form that he does not have any vacant undeveloped plot of land, does not own a farm, Orchard or ranch, factory or other enterprise and he also perjured in his deposition that he does not own a foreign account,” Okonkwo said.

“The same Hon. Jibrin Nigerians know in Abuja leaving in affluence is the same one creating a spartan image for himself. How fraudulent?

“Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin owns at least five accounts with Barclays Bank alone with a Euro account, Dollar account, mortgage account, reserve account and international account. All the accounts are functional and he uses them while still serving as a member of the house of representatives and have not declared their existence to the relevant authorities.”
