The KASROMA’s Managing-Director, Alhaji Abdulaziz Mohammed, made this known when he presented a memo before the Katsina State Judicial Commission of Inquiry on Wednesday.

Mohammed said that when he assumed duty one year ago, he discovered that N14.2 billion in the agency’s account had either been stolen, diverted or missing.

He said that he had relevant details to substantiate his claim before the commission.

After presenting the memo, the counsel to the commission, Mr Hassan Liman, (SAN), urged the commission to adjourn the sitting for proper hearing.

The Chairman of the commission, Justice Muhammad Surajo, adjourned the sitting to October 26 for hearing.
