The candidate for the New Nigerian Peoples Party, Ismaila Yusuf Atumeyi, who was detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Abuja for a massive bank fraud, has been relocated to Lagos to serve in the Kogi State House of Assembly.

In order to continue the investigation into the swindle, the politician-computer fraud suspect was flown into Lagos early on Wednesday.

Atumeyi was scheduled to be questioned by a different team of operatives at the EFCC’s Lagos Command, according to Wilson Uwujaren, the organization’s head of media and publicity.

Atumeyi and two others, Joshua Dominic and Abdulmalik Salau Femi, a former bank employee, were arrested by the EFCC for allegedly hacking into the system of a commercial bank and defrauding the institution of over N1.4 billion.

The EFCC had in a statement on Tuesday November 1, 2022 disclosed that it recovered N326 million and $140,500 from Atumeyi during a sting operation at his hideout in Queens Estate, Gwarinpa, Abuja, while $470, 000 was recovered from Abdulmalik in Lagos.
