A man identified as Salisu Isah, was on Thursday arraigned before Justice Bashar Ibrahim Tambuwal of the Sokoto State High Court Sitting in Sokoto, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

According to a post on the official page of the EFCC, Isah was arraigned on a one-count charge of criminal breach of trust amounting to N7.1 million.

The charge reads: “That you Ibrahim Salisu Isah, sometime in November 2022 at Sokoto within the Judicial Division of the High Court of Sokoto State, while being entrusted with the sum of N7,110,000, by one Buhari Hammani Gumbi to purchase and supply 1,800 bags of BUA cement at the rate of N3,950 per bag.

“Dishonestly misappropriated the money to your personal use in violation of the mode in which the trust is to be discharged and thereby committed the offence of criminal breach of trust contrary to section 300 of the Sokoto State Penal Code Law and punishable under Section 301 of the same law.”


According to the EFCC, “Isah pleaded not guilty to the charge, prosecution counsel S.H Sa’ad, applied for a trial date while the defence counsel Shamsu Dauda applied for bail for the accused.

“Sa’ad objected to the defence counsel’s oral application for bail, arguing that being a court of records; the defence must come formally by way of an affidavit for the prosecution to respond.

“Justice Tambuwal adjourned the matter to April 23, 2024, for a hearing. He also ordered a formal bail application and remanded the defendant in the custody of the Correctional services.”


Sa’ad objected to the oral application of bail.
