Contractor Completes N305m Abandoned Projects after EFCC’s Intervention

142



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has ensured the completion of two separate abandoned projects by Fariq Interbiz Limited, worth N305,000,000 (Three Hundred and Five Million Naira) in Wasagu and Dirin-Daji communities of Kebbi State.

The intervention followed a whistleblower information that the Commission received where it was gathered that the Federal Ministry of Water Resources awarded the contracts to the company to construct two comprehensive water supply units, one in Wasagu and the other in Dirin-Daji communities.

The contractor, having received a reasonable percentage of the total contract sum, abandoned the project uncompleted.


The Tax Fraud Section of the Commission then began investigation and this compelled the contractor to return to site to complete both projects which include wells, piping, reservoir purchase and control houses.
