Nine suspects were arrested while three others ae at large.
Speaking to journalists on Thursday, the state commandant of the corps, Muhammad Bello Mu’azu, said that three people brought N100,000 bribe to ‘kill’ the matter.
“I did not reject the money but asked my officers to collect it for evidence, which I am displaying to you at this briefing,” Daily Post quoted the NDCDC boss.
He explained that the case, with Reference No. CR/F/28/2023, has been transferred to the Upper Shari’a Court 1, Gusau, saying that the court adjourned until May 24, 2023.
Mu’azu further stated that the drums of water chemicals intercepted were 70 and not 75 drums as earlier stated, pointing out that each of the drums cost N85,000 according to a market survey.
Bello Muazu further said the waybill presented by the driver of the vehicle that conveyed the 70 drums of chemicals was fake.
He said that the court ordered that the vehicle and other exhibits be kept in the corps’ custody until May 24, when the court will hear the case.
