Suspended House Of Rep Member Abdulmumin Jibrin Flees To The UK

The suspended member of the House of Representatives, Abdulmumin Jibrin, on Monday vowed never to return to Nigeria unless his safety is guaranteed. 

Jibrin made this known in a statement in Abuja. Jibrin, left Nigeria for London last week to receive an award and take his anti-corruption campaign to international community. He was suspended by the House of Representatives after accusing the Speaker, some Principal Officers and a few other members of corruption, abuse of office and monumental fraud in padding up the 2016 budget. 

Abdumumin Jibrin In an exclusive interview with a television station in London on Monday, the lawmaker said he recently received threats from some of the lawmakers he accused of corruption. According to him, the ‘House cabal’ led by the Speaker, Mr Yakubu Dogara, Deputy Speaker, Yusuf Lasun, Whip Alhassan Doguwa and Minority Leader,Rep. Leo Ogor are using Rep. Herma Hembe to either assassinate or kidnap him or members of his family. 

The lawmaker also said that the initial silence of the President on the matter was a blessing in disguise because if the President had spoken much earlier he would have been accused of using him to fight the House Leadership. He said that the time was ripe and the crisis matured enough for the President to break his silence.

 “The situation currently at hand is different from the initial stage of the crisis. The silence of the presidency is no longer sending the right message to Nigerians and the international community ,” he said. 

Jibrin also revealed that he recently wrote to President Muhammadu Buhari, seeking audience to brief him about the monumental fraud in the 2016 budget, individual and systemic corruption in the House. He said his letter also included some vital information on how to check corruption in the house, fraud in budget process and reform the House for the good of the country. According to him, over 2,000 fraudulent projects worth over N284 billion were inserted into 2016 budget, saying such fraud never happened in the history of the Nigerian legislature. He also exonerated himself of any wrongdoing in the appropriation process, saying he had been in the House for five years and had never abused his office or corruptly enriched himself. 

Jibrin reiterated his resolve to continue with the anti corruption campaign. He revealed that he would take the campaign to the international stage by reaching out to foreign governments, parliaments, media, civil society groups and Nigerians in Diaspora among others. He said that it would enable him to press further for the arrest and prosecution of Speaker Yakubu Dogara, Lasun, Doguwa, Ogor and other members, he tagged the corrupt cabal in the House of Representatives. 

Rep. Herman Hembe APC-Benue who is one of the lawmakers accused by Jibrin on padding of the 2016 budget, said that Jibrin fled to the United Kingdom to avoid prosecution. Hembe disclosed this in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja while reacting to Jibrin’s statement. 

Hembe said: “my attention has been drawn to a statement issued by the suspended member Abdulmumin Jibrin who has fled to United Kingdom. “Jibrin’s allegation that his life is under threat is laughable. “I understand that the anti-graft agencies are closing in on him with their investigation into his past deeds. “He might have got the hint of his possible prosecution and decided to flee while raising false alarm. “May I remind him that no matter where he goes justice will surely catch up with him as there is no hiding place for criminals in our today’s world,”Hembe said.

*I hope Jibrin remembered to return the monies he confessed to collecting with guilty conscience?That would be nice if he did.
He who comes to equity MUST come with clean hands before crying wolf!

Let me use Former President Jonathan's famous quote during the last Presidential campaign.My darling Former President Said 

''Ole is Ole''


  1. He wont ooo, how else dyu want him to live a good life in uk???

    1. Jubrin will you keep quiet. Threat to life indeed. None of the accused would be foolish enough to take your life when they all know that they'd be the prime suspects. This case is not coded so there's nothing like threat to your life.

      You better come back and finish what you started. Not unless you want to use this as an excuse to seek political asylum in the UK. Trust Buhari to tell May to send you back home, that it is safe. Lol. Ask Angela Merkel

  2. hahahaha there is no clean man there in that house. All are thieves.

    Even those that called themselves Christians there. They are all thieves.

  3. Why run abi na flee?
    You want to do what's right u flee and began to yarn for UK..
    My brother no where is safe, abi u no dey watch nollywood. Na one phone call way go bring u back.
    The quote "leaders of tomorrow" doesn't work in Nigeria.

  4. No hiding place for thieves, weather he flees to the UK or not, he must return his loot.

  5. Ndi ala,oshi gbukwu unuu ncha,chukwu kpokwa unuu ncha na ebe unuu nor oku,nonsense

  8. All this there media anti-corruption circus don tire me sef,Old man come clean first before blabbing ur fat mouth.

  9. Rotfl... Jibrin 'an evil man runneth when no one is in pursuit of him' While on exile please visit a psychiatrist and tell him how your hallucinations is taking a toll on you! imaginary enemies is all you will ever have

  10. Like I said earlier - there is no peace for the wicked. Oga, in a sane scenario of how Nigeria works, no one's security can be guaranteed so please talk to the birds
