Must Read

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) invaded the Kaduna State Urban Planning Development Agency (KASUPDA) headquarters on Monday and arrested the Director-General, Malam Ismail Umaru Dikko.


Due to the demolition of houses around the state, KASUPDA has earned the title of Kaduna’s most feared agency.


Before being promoted to head the agency in 2019, Dikko worked as a Special Assistant to Governor Nasir El-Rufai.

The DG was in a meeting with his staff when EFCC officials stormed the office a few minutes after 10 a.m., according to reports.


Eyewitnesses said there was some commotion before the DG entered a black Hilux Toyota vehicle of the EFCC.


According to sources, the KASUPDA chairman was accompanied inside the vehicle by two EFCC employees dressed in suits and two police officers armed with weapons.

The personnel at KASUPDA had previously attempted to block the EFCC from leaving with the DG, according to the source, and security at the gate had barred the car from leaving.


The DG, on the other hand, had requested that the gate be opened.
