13 cars not impounded in my house — Sen. Barau

Chairman of the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFund, Senator Jibrin Barau (APC, Kano) has denied the report that 13 cars were impounded at his Kano residence.

The Nigerian Customs Service had in Kano on Monday disclosed that 13 Toyota Hilux vans and a Land Cruiser were impounded at the Kano residence of a Senator.

The house is said to belong to Senator Barau, but in his reaction he said his house was not raided by the agents of the Customs.

Senator Barau in his petition said he got a text from a Daily Trust reporter and tried to get back to him but efforts failed.

He said: “I got a text from a Daily Trust reporter last night and effort to reach the reporter who refused to answer his calls.

“And in their publication today, they reported that 13 Vehicles without Custom Duties were found in his house”.

Sen. Jibrin Barau further stated that they claimed no one owned the vehicles and wonders why the media is carrying fake news about him.

The Senate referred the Newspaper publication to the Committee on Ethics for further investigation.
