The corruption scandal was unleashed by Timi Frank, Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Party. Timi Frank revealed that the Federal House of Representatives in an investigative report indicted Yemi Osinbajo in the approval and misuse of 5.8 Billion Naira intervention funds for the North East in 2017. This is significantly worrisome due to the massive economic turmoil, unrest and extreme poverty that has hit North East Nigeria in the past decade. Another 17 Billion Naira from the Ecological Funds remains under investigation.
