Herman Hembe, a member of the House of Representatives from Benue State, has accused Abdulmumin Jibrin of running away from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Jibrin, who was axed from the house over some allegations leveled against the leadership of the 8th assembly, recently fled to London on the ground that his life was in danger.
But in a statement on Monday, Hembe said Jibrin fled to London because the anti-graft agencies were closing in on him on his past deeds.
“My attention has been drawn to a statement issued by the suspended member Abdulmumin Jibrin who has fled to United Kingdom,” the statement read.
“Jibrin’s allegation that his life is under threat is laughable and foolish. I understand that the anti-graft agencies are closing in on him with their investigation into his past deeds.
“He might have got the hint of his possible and prosecution and decided to flee while raising false alarm.
“May I remind him that no matter where he goes, justice will surely catch up with him as there is no hiding place for criminals in our today’s world.”
