A nominee of President Muhammadu Buhari has been remanded in Prison custody over N182 million fraud.

A Kwara State High Court sitting in Ilorin remanded Dr. Saadu Alanamu in prison custody for being involved in fraud and abuse of bail condition.

It will be recalled that Alanamu’s name was sent to the Senate by Buhari last week for confirmation as a commissioner of the National Population Commission.

Alanamu was also nominated into the board of the Independent Corrupt Practices, and other related Offences Commission, ICPC, by the then acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, despite being probed by the same agency.


Following public outcry, the Vice President withdrew his nomination after which the ICPC arrested and arraigned him for fraud. Alanamu, a former Chairman of the Governing Council of the Kwara State Polytechnic, was charged alongside the Chief Executive Director of Namylas Nigeria Limited, Salman Sulaiman, for allegedly collecting a bribe from a contractor.

Justice Mahmud Jafar but was remanded Alanamu in prison on Monday following allegations by the judge that some persons had offered him a bribe to dismiss the case.
