Chinese Pays Fraudsters N30.6m Bribe to Secure Road Contract

Chinese Pays Fraudsters N30.6m Bribe to Secure Road Contract

The police have arrested one Mr. Adamu Garuba, aka Honourable Ibrahim, for allegedly defrauding a Chinese national of the sum of N30.6million.

The suspect, working with his sister-in-law, Rita Waziri, and others still at large, specialised in defrauding contractors, interested in road construction contracts from the Kaduna State Government. Rita posed as the Commissioner of Works and Housing.

The suspects were arrested after they defrauded a Chinese Engineer, Su, of the sum of N30.6million under the guise of assisting him to land a road construction contract from the Kaduna State Government.

Su residing in the nation’s capital Abuja, was approached in July 2018, by one Mayowa, a member of the syndicate, now in jail over a separate fraud case.

Mayowa intimated Su that the Kaduna State Government was searching for contractors to rehabilitate a 14 Kilometre Road at the Kagoro area of the state.

Mayowa, in his bid to convince Su that the contract was genuine, brought in Garuba, who he presented as Honourable Ibrahim, a serving member of the Kaduna State House of Assembly, who is also the Chairman of Budget and Planning Committee of the House.

Playing his part smartly, Garuba informed Su that he would have to register his company with the Kaduna State Public Procurement Authority. He told him that the process of the registration was N1.6m.

The Police said:

“After Su paid the N1.6million, Mayowa and Garuba invited him to the Kaduna State Government Secretariat, Kaduna State. They took him to a makeshift office, which proudly displayed pictures of members of the syndicate.

Another member presented himself as Commissioner of Finance and the sum of N28million was taken from Su after negotiation of the contract. A fake contract awarding letter was issued to Su, but a few months after, he became suspicious of the deal.

He contacted Garuba, complaining and demanding a refund of his money, but he was lured to Kaduna State, where he was kidnapped and a ransom of N2million collected from him before he was released, that was when the police stepped in and smashed the syndicate.

  1. I must say that some of these criminals calling themselves foreign investors are terrible individuals and their interests in Africa is to cripple, damage and colide with notorious African citizens to loots available scarce resources meant for developing Africa
    In the case of these Chinese and the fraudsters, BOTH parties must be brought to justice accordingly.
    There is no ignorance in law, the giver and receiver of bribe are criminals!
    No preference for colour , if a black man goes to China and participate in fraudulent business, he will be judged accordingly.
    If these Chinese are not prosecuted with these wicked kidnappers it means , the judiciary system of Nigeria is a laughing one! This will continue to portray Nigeria as a senseless country in international communities!
    I’m not in anyway support those Nigerians involved, they are disgrace to themselves, family, friends and communities.
    Those Chinese must be prosecuted accordingly as well…..Giver and receiver of bribes are both criminals!
