Bauchi State Governor, Muhammad Abubakar has accused his predecessor, Isa Yuguda of withdrawing N1 billion from one of the state’s accounts in a single day.

Abubakar made the revelation during a press briefing in Abuja on Wednesday, July 27, 2016, Punch reports.

“I always feel shy of churning out figures I am not certain of. All I can say is definitely, there will be great revelations because the little I have seen, for example, I know of a situation in which in one day the sum of N1bn was taken out of one account of the government with N10m cheques,” he said.

“Several N10m cheques but I would not be able to put a figure on the total recovery because like I said, the work of the committee is ongoing," he added.
