According to the Presidency, Gimba Ya’u Kumo, the perpetrator sought by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Associated Offenses Commission (ICPC), married President Muhammadu Buhari and became his in-law, but the relationship has since ended.

Garba Shehu, Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, reported this in a tweet on Friday.

Kumo is wanted for allegedly stealing $65 million from the National Housing Fund.

Kumo, a former Managing Director at the Federal Mortgage Bank, married Buhari’s daughter in Daura, Katsina State, in 2016.

However, Shehu disclosed that the (marriage) relationship had since ended some years ago.

”A running story to the effect that the ICPC has declared ‘an in-law of the President’ wanted in connection with fraud involving the large sum of money, 65 million dollars to be exact,” the statement read in part

“To set the records straight, the person declared wanted by the ICPC isn’t an in-law to President Buhari.

“While at some point in time, the said fugitive from justice had been linked to a family member in marriage, that relationship ended some years ago.

”It’s, therefore, unfortunate to bring the President’s family into this case.

”The President’s position at all times is that the law be allowed to take its course.

”As is well known of him, President Muhammadu Buhari will not provide any cover for crime, no matter who is involved.”
