Why Police Declared Ex-Kogi Governorship Candidate Wanted 

By Joseph Adeiye

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has declared Musa Mubarak, a former Kogi State governorship candidate, wanted for failing to honour invitations.

This came on Monday, two months after FIJ reported how Musa, who is the Chief Executive Officer of Almubee Group, took N153 million from seven clients and refused to allocate the plots of land he agreed to offer them in the Wuye area of Abuja.

Musa (also known as Ojemanyareju and Emperor Almubee) is “wanted for failing to honour police invitation over an allegation of obtaining money under false pretence, cheating and breach of trust”.

Musa took over N150 million from his clients and failed to deliver over 10 months later, FIJ found.

“A coworker of mine introduced me to the property and asked me if I was interested. Then, it was going for about N35 million, and I made a N20 million down payment,” Abel Tama (not real name) told FIJ in April.

“I also paid him an additional N140,000 for documents such as the survey plan. I actually stay around the area where the land was. So, one of the days I was passing by, I saw that the building control agency was demolishing some buildings. I went there and asked them what they were doing. It was then they told me that the man (Musa) did not have the right to sell land in that area.

“He claimed that he owned the land and took our money for pieces of land that he had no approval for. The documents he used to sell the land did not correspond with the actual location he claimed he wanted to sell to us. We have tried to reach him several times, but he is not reachable. Basically, he defrauded us.”

As his clients waited for the landed property they had purchased, Musa aspired and failed to become the Governor of Kogi State through the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in the 2023 election.

When Ilerioluwa Aloba, the popular musician also known as Mohbad, died under mysterious circumstances in September, blogs reported that Musa donated millions to Mohbad’s wife.
