Biography of Olusegun Obasanjo, Career and Personal life


In May 2021, ICPC declared Kumo alongside two others Tarry Ruffus and Bola Ogunsola for allegedly embezzling $65 million.

ICPC wrote

The persons whose pictures appear above, Mr. Tarry Rufus, Mr. Gimba Yau Kumo and Mr. Bola Ogunsola, are hereby declared WANTED by the ICPC in connection with issues bordering on misappropriation of National Housing Funds and diversion of the sum of Sixty Five Million dollars ($65,000,000).”

“Anyone who has useful information on their whereabouts should report to ICPC Headquarters, Abuja, any of the ICPC state offices or the nearest Police station.”

Media outlets reported Kumo to be President Buhari’s son-in-law. However, a statement by President Buhari media Aide Garba Shehu dissociated presidency with Kumo’s crimes.

Garba Shehu said Kumo had divorced President Buhari’s daughter, Fatima years ago.

Garba Shehu wrote

This should normally be an affirmation that our anti-corruption agencies/institutions are truly independent and allowed unfettered freedom by the President, which in fact, is the case.

“That a state institution can issue such is a measure of the administration’s commitment to accountability, equality and justice.

“To set the records straight, the person declared wanted by the ICPC is not an in-law to President Buhari. While at some point in time, the said fugitive from justice had been linked to a family member in marriage, that relationship has ended some years ago.

“It is, therefore, unfortunate to bring the Presidents family into this case. It is in our view, an attempt to generate views and sell copies of sensational reporting.  

“The President’s position at all times is that the law be allowed to take its course. As is well known of him, President Muhammadu Buhari will not provide any cover for crime, no matter who is involved.”
