Popular Abuja-based millionaire, Dumebi Kachikwu is currently in the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission net over alleged N750million scam.
Dumebi Kachikwu who was former married to one of the sisters of Nigerian rapper, Naeto Cwas arrested on the evening of Friday, January 9 by the EFCC in a case of obtaining money by false pretence.
The EFCC had on Tuesday, December 23 invited the business man for questioning following a petition from the Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Health, Ndudi Elumelu. Ndudi Elumelu, who was until recently a Delta State Governorship aspirant, claimed that Kachikwu fleeced him of N750million by promising him that he would help him actualise his dream of emerging the Governorship flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party in Delta State.
Dumebi Kachikwu did not honour the invitation and the morning of Friday, January 9, EFCC raided the home of the business man and searched the whole building. According to Sahara Reporters, Dumebi Kachikwu who was not at home during the raid turned himself over to EFCC later that same day.
Kachickwu had reportedly paraded his association with the bigwigs of the party, promising the petitioner that with the N750m he would be able to persuade the executives of the party to support his ambitions of being the next Governor of the State.
Kachikwu however failed to deliver on his promises as the PDP Governorship primary election was won by Senator Ifeanyi Okowa.
Sahara Reporters reports that several incriminating documents as well as five luxury vehicles were recovered during the raid at Kachikwu’s house.
