The report stated that EFCC placed an “under investigation” sign on the property, even though business activities were ongoing.

Umahi was named alongside former governor of Enugu state, Sullivan Chime, among those who benefited from the alleged  diversion of N400 million arms purchase funds from the office of the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd).

Meanwhile, all attempts to get the reaction of Umahi’s chief press secretary, Emma Anya, to react to the report proved abortive.

A close ally of the governor who spoke under the condition of anonymity however dismissed the EFCC’s action.

His words: “It makes no meaning that the EFCC could paste information on the properties they felt belonged to our governor.

“He resigned as head of the business empire since he was elected deputy governor in 2011 and EFCC’s action amounts to nothing because it is preposterous to say they are investigating Umahi’s property.”

Few months ago, the EFCC arrested the governor’s younger brother, Austin, over his involvement with the N400 million campaign funds for Ebonyi in the last general elections.

Last month, Governor Umahi handed cars worth N19 million to each member of the Ebonyi state executive council.
