The Katsina State Government has accused the immediate past governor, Alhaji Ibrahim Shema, and other top officials of diverting N8.6 billion.

Liman said the amount was diverted from the accounts of the Ministry of Environment, Department of Community Development, Special Duties, Girl-child Education and the Department of Almajirai Affairs.
He explained that available records showed that the funds were allegedly diverted by the former governor and other government officials.
According to him, there was no evidence on how the funds were utilised during the period under review.
Liman, however, told the commission that the former governor had filed a case before the Court of Appeal, Kaduna, on infringement of his fundamental human rights.
He asked the commission to adjourn the sitting pending the determination of the case.
In his ruling, the Chairman of the commission, Justice Muhammad Surajo, adjourned the sitting indefinitely, saying that the commission will communicate to all parties involved.
The commission also adjourned the hearing of memo on activities of Katsina Road Maintenance Agency and Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs pending the determination of the appeal case before the Court of Appeal.
Governor Aminu Masari inaugurated the commission to investigate how some funds were lost during Shema’s tenure and to advise the government accordingly.
