Reports circulating the media has it that one of the companies indicted for alleged diversion of Internally Displaced Funds (IDP) has been linked to President Muhammadu Buhari’s in-laws. Mahman Daura, who is President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew happens to be the father in-law to one of the owners.
According to a source, the company is owned by one Alhaji Bachir Sanusi Dantata and his son Bachir Bachir Dantata. cannot independently verify this claim but the picture below from the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), suggests that the allegation might be true.

Yesterday, October 4, the company’s name was mentioned in the Nigerian Senate as one of the organisations indicted for alleged diversion of funds for IDPs.

In a motion sponsored by Senator Bashir Babakaka Gabai from Borno Central District, he noted that despite huge releases by federal government and donor agencies, the situation in IDP camps is far from cheering. According to him, 4.5 million people are in dire need of assistance out of which one million others are in danger of extreme malnutrition. Senator Gabai alleged:“Rather than use the money appropriated for the IDPs and the Northeast to ameliorate the problems, the focus of the disbursement so far made have been used to feather other interest”.

He cited examples of diversion of the money meant for the welfare of the people as including “award of N80.7 million to JMT Global Technologies Ltd for rehabilitation of Police Station in Kwambir, N203.357m to another company, Josman Technologies Limited for removal of invasive plant species along river channels and another N117 million paid to Lintex International for supply of temporary shelters with no record of these shelters anywhere”. However, Senate President Bukola Saraki in his ruling, urged the adhoc committee to submit its findings in one week, adding that any person or group found culpable will be dealt with in accordance with the law.
