Lawmaker-Elect In EFCC Custody Over Alleged N26m Property Fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested Abdulgafar Ayinla, a lawmaker-elect from Kwara state, over his alleged involvement in property scam, forgery and obtaining money under false pretence to tune of about N26 million.

The EFCC said in a statement on Thursday, May 16, that Ayinla, who is expected to be sworn-in on May 29, 2019, confessed to committing the crime and disclosed that he used the money to finance his political campaigns.

The statement said the petitioner who resides in the United State of America alleged that Ayinla, who is a legal practitioner, was introduced to her by her late aunt as capable of helping her purchase some properties in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital.

According to her, “The lawmaker-elect sold to me another two plots of land with four bedroom bungalow at window level at Agric area of Ilorin.

“I paid N8,240, 000 commission of which Ayinla informed me that the seller had received his money but he never paid the money to the seller up till today, and never refunded the money to me.”

The EFCC said the suspect disclosed that he diverted the money to his personal use and promised to pay back when he receives his wardrobe allowance from the Kwara state House of Assembly.

The anti-graft agency said he would soon be charged to court.
