The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission has handed over to six local government councils, six tractors worth N72 million seized from Isa Hamman Misau, a former Senator representing Bauchi Central Senatorial zone.
ICPC State Commissioner, Abubakar Dutsinma, who handed over the tractors to the chairmen of Ganjuwa, Misau, Dambam, Darazo, Warji and Ningi councils in Kafin Madakii, said they were recovered on July 31 by a special Constituency Projects Tracking Group (CPTG) set up in 12
states by the commission in collaboration with civil society organizations.
He said in the course of the investigation, the group discovered that the tractors were under the 2015 constituency projects bought by Isa Hamman Misau, but could not be delivered to the councils.
Dutsinma explained that the chairman of the Commission, Bolaji Owosanoye, ordered the release of the tractors for distribution to the beneficiaries.
A source in the commission also revealed that the former senator was made to put the tractors in working condition before they were handed over to the local government chairmen.
Also recovered from Misau are motorcycles ought to have been distributed as part of his constituency projects.
The source in the ICPC said the motorcycles had not been distributed because it was hard to identify potential beneficiaries.
