The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in its statement declaring a Chinese, Liu Zuzhi, wanted for alleged conspiracy, bribery and embezzlement of funds, said he lied the monies were meant to bribe Nigerian officials, state governments and banks.
Zuzhi, until his disappearance, was deputy manager with Sanju Sunny Nigeria Limited and China Railway Engineering Nigeria Limited. He and three others, the EFCC, alleged, connived to defraud his former employers (Sanju Sunny Nigeria Limited and China Railway Engineering Nigeria Limited) of funds running into millions of naira.
Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC spokesman, said Zuzhi had drawn the monies in local and foreign currencies. Although the EFCC has successfully tracked some suspects connected to the crime, Zuzhi has eluded its dragnets.
Zuzhi hails from Chongqing region of China, and was a signatory to all the transactions. While working with the companies, Zuzhi was quartered at the Chinese Quarters, Olusegun Osoba Hilltop Estate, Abeokuta, Ogun State. Uwujaren urged the public to give useful information that may lead to the suspect’s arrest through its offices in Enugu, Kano, Lagos, Gombe, Port Harcourt and Abuja.
