N250m saga: Anambra money not missing, says c’ttee

By Vincent Ujumadu

AWKA—THE controversial N250 million, allegedly intercepted from an Anambra state contractor in Lagos by the police last month came to an end yesterday, as a three man committee set up by the State House of Assembly, absolved Governor Peter Obi of any wrong doing, stressing that money belonging to Anambra state was not missing.

In the report read on the floor of the House by the chairman of the adhoc committee, Mr Gabriel Onyenwife, the committee observed that what transpired was a clear case of contract between a company, Glitz Introverse Ltd owned by Mr. Ejike Onwusogbulu and heads of the 21 local government councils in the state for the supply of 21 units of Ford Ranger 4×4 pick up vans for the police to assist in maintaining security  in the state and 21 units of Kia Optima cars for use by the local government officials.

The adoption of the report by the House of Assembly, put to an end, insinuations that Governor Obi was involved in money laundering, which had become a campaign issue for his opponents in the state,  since the incident was reported.
