$6.2m Theft: FG Takes Actions Against CBN Staffs, Others For Forging Buhari’s Signature

Published by admin on

The Federal Government has requested Interpol to place three individuals, Adamu Abubakar, Imam Abubakar, and Odoh Eric Ocheme, on a watchlist for their alleged involvement in a sophisticated scheme to defraud the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) of $6.2 million.

The suspects are accused of forging the signature of former President Buhari and documents attributed to Boss Mustapha, the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation.

The forged documents include an Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation Identity Card in the name of Jibril Abubakar, a letter dated 23 January, 2023, purportedly written by Muhammad Buhari to Mr. Boss Mustapha, and a letter dated 26 January, 2023, purportedly written by Boss Mustapha to Mr. Godwin Emefiele.

Additionally, the intention was to deceive the CBN into believing the documents were authentic, prompting the release of the substantial sum.
