Bauchi State government has asked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), to investigate the past governor of the state, Malam Isa Yuguda over alleged misuse of over a sum of N6billion allegedly spent for security reasons.

This was contained in a letter addressed to the EFCC chairman, dated November 27, 2015 with number GO/SS/FIN/S18/T.1 and signed by the secretary to the state government, Bello Shehu Ilelah.
