The Gombe State Assets Recovery Committee has threatened legal action against former Governor Ibrahim Dakwambo and his former aides if they fail to appear before the panel.
The committee also said that the invitation was for the past administration to account for property it disposed of illegally.
The Chairman of the committee, Group Capt. Peter Bilal (retd), made the threat in Gombe while briefing newsme.
According to Bilal, the committee would resort to legal actions to recover the state assets that were reportedly disposed of without due process if they fail to appear before it.
“We call on Dankwambo, his former commissioner of finance and appointees, including his ADC, principal permanent secretary, chief of staff, to respond to the directive.
“Also, the former security adviser is to appear before the committee and surrender government property in his possession with immediate effect,” he stated.
Bilal also accused Dakwambo and his fomer aides of frustrating efforts to make them account for how the state government property that were disposed of and some cash withdrawn from government coffers at the twilight of his administration.
According to him, the committee has recovered some and some beneficiaries voluntarily surrendered theirs.
“So far, the committee recovered some property, including land and vehicles,” he said.
