Former governor of Plateau State, Senator David Jonah Jang, has chided the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over allegation that he owned a mansion worth N500 million in Kaduna.

Jang representing Plateau North senatorial district at the National Assembly also said the issue was part of the media trial employed by the commission to tarnish his image in the public.

Jang, a former presidential aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) made the comment in a statement signed by his Media Consultant, Clinton Garuba and made available to the  journalists in Jos on Monday.

He said, “The property located at No. 8 and 9 Gobarau Road, Unguwan Rimi GRA, Kaduna state does not belong to Senator Jang, and this is not the first time the commission would investigate its ownership.

“The property formerly belonging to Northern Nigerian Development Company, Kaduna, was allocated to the Senator while he was the executive Governor of Plateau State but eventually lost interest and did not continue with the acquisition,” he said.

Ex-Governor Jang further said that EFCC knows the actual owners of the said property, “but deliberately, EFCC continues to harass the Senator in its usual media trials aimed at tarnishing his glowing name and reputation,” he said.
