The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), has expressed dissatisfaction in the discharge and acquittal of Sanusi Mohammed Isa, aide of a former governor of Bauchi state, Malam Isa Yuguda by the Bauchi State High Court, saying it is ready the ruling.

The anti-graft commission said “is set to appeal the ruling of the Bauchi State High Court which discharged and acquitted Sanusi Mohammed Isa, a former personal assistant to ex-Governor of Bauchi State, Mallam Isa Yuguda”.

It will be recalled that Justice Rabi T. Umar, the Chief Judge of Bauchi State and the presiding judge in the case, had on  December 13, 2022, discharged and acquitted the said Sanusi Mohammed Isa on all the 36 – count charges against him bordering on corruption, and ordered the release of “all his properties in the possession of the Commission”.

However, the ICPC traced and seized 220 flats, located in 20 estates, belonging to Sanusi Mohammed Isa in 2017. The houses range from two-bedroom to three-bedroom flats. Other items seized were sophisticated guns, rounds of ammunition, exotic cars, designer watches, bales of brocade and air conditioners.

But according to a statement by Mrs Azuka Ogugua, spokesperson of ICPC, “The Commission expresses its dissatisfaction in the discharge and acquittal of Sanusi Mohammed Isa by the Bauchi State High Court.

“It avers that the state high court’s judgment was not in consonance with the weight of evidence before the court, including its refusal to allow civil forfeiture.

“Part of the evidence presented to the court was the fact that the defendant couldn’t have acquired the 220 two-bedroom and three-bedroom flats, located in 20 estates, and other assets based on his annual salary and allowance. The 220 flats in 20 estates are valued at N1,857,351,750:00.

“Sanusi Mohammed Isa worked with the Bauchi Investment Corporation from 3rd October, 1989 to 31st December, 2012 before joining the Office of the Head of Civil Service, Bauchi on 31st December, 2012 as a director on grade level 16.

“Isa was released for the special assignment of P.A to the then Governor of Bauchi State, Mallam Isa Yuguda on 22nd December, 2008. By the directives to release him for the special assignment, he was to enjoy his salary and other entitlements of N9,122,388.45 annually from the Bauchi Investment Corporation and was entitled to an allowance of N15,000.00 monthly as a personal assistant to the former governor.

“The Commission strongly believes that the assets seized from Sanusi Mohammed Isa were acquired with state funds and he was only a front for another politically exposed person who is the original owner of the confiscated assets”.
