Popular Big Girl, Maimuna Aliyu, In Multi-Billion Naira Dubai & Abuja Properties' Saga

We are in the era of revelations. A recent investigation has revealed how ex-banker and former nominee to the board of an anti-corruption body, ICPC, Maimuna Aliyu allegedly acquired a Dubai property worth $3.05m, over N1.2 billion at an exchange rate of N360 to $1.

According to the EFCC, the money may have come from long years of misappropriation, contract scams and diversion of public funds by the popular big girl.

Sources who claim close knowledge to her inner dealings told Vanguard that Aliyu may have served as front for some top politicians, who are not unconnected with moves to appoint her into ICPC allegedly to defend their selfish course.

The lady was on October 18, 2017, was listed by an Abuja High Court Judge, Justice Nnamdi Dimgba among those who served as proxy to the former FCT Minister, Bala Mohammed in unlawful property dealings in and around Abuja, whose values are in excess of N3billion.

Contained in a letter personally written and signed by Maimuna on 2nd of October, 2015, which she addressed to the Minister, Ministry of foreign Affairs, in a bid to state her legitimate acquisition of the asset estimated at $3.05m, are details surrounding the transaction.

The billion naira investment, the letter which was exclusively sourced, stated, was sold to the ex-banker between 2011 and 2012 by Dubai Lifestyle City.

High level security sources said investigations by the EFCC in collaboration with the Dubai authorities may have traced more properties in that country to the big girl and some of her friends who are top officials of the immediate past government.

The Buhari Presidency in August withdrew Maimuna's nomination to the board of ICPC after allegedly discovering she was being investigated for corrupt practices by EFCC.

A three-count charge of abuse of office, misappropriation of public funds and criminal breach of trust was slammed against her on August 15 by the same ICPC where some top men wanted to put her.
