Former governor of Plateau State and lawmaker representing Plateau North senatorial district, Jonah Jang, has denied ownership of the property uncovered by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) officials in Kaduna State.
Senator Jang, in a statement by his media consultant, Clinton Garuba, said: “The property located at No. 8 and 9 Gobarau Road, Unguwan Rimi GRA, Kaduna State does not belong to Senator Jang,” the statement said.
“The property formerly belonging to Northern Nigerian Development Company, Kaduna, was allocated to the senator while he was the executive governor of Plateau State but eventually lost interest and did not continue with the acquisition.”
The lawmaker insisted that the EFCC was aware of this development and knew the real owners of the said property.
He accused the anti-graft agency of ‘deliberately’ engaging in such action to harass him and tarnish his name and reputation.
