The DRC’s 'inspection générale des finances' (IGF) has identified several key figures – including Joseph Kabila's former prime minister ... Augustin Matata Ponyo – involved in the disappearance of more than $205m for the Bukanga Lonzo agroindustrial park project.
In seven years, Sabiu Yusuf’s life took a giant leap.
From an unemployed young man seeking a job into the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) in 2014, Yusuf has risen to a position where he can influence the appointment of key people in the government including the Comptroller-General of Immigration.
As the personal assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari, Yusuf serves as one of the few communication gateways between the president and the outside world. In that role, he has been able to amass influence and personal wealth, according to sources in State House and local media reports.
