The Minister of Education, Professor Ruqayyatu Ahmed Rufai, yesterday, sent a high-powered delegation to the federal capital territory (FCT) police commissioner, Mr Adenrele Shinaba to disown an alleged contract fraud suspect Tope Akinmoladun, who claimed to have been in collaboration with her ministry to construct two blocks of 12 classrooms for primary and secondary schools in 774 Local Government Councils in the country.
When he was paraded by the FCT police commissioner, Mr Adenrele Shinaba before some journalists in his office on December 27, 2012, Akinmoladun said that President Goodluck Jonathan had since directed Rufai to work with him in a bid to construct two blocks of 12 classrooms for primary and secondary schools in 774 local government councils in the country.
Akinmoladun's statement was also aired live by the 10.5 Crowder FM Radio from the office of Mr Shianaba.
Akinmoladun's firm had between January and March, 2012 made internet advertising and in some dailies calling for tender to construct two blocks of 12 classrooms of model primary and secondary schools.
The adverts carried the federal government's coat of arms.
Akinmoladun had boasted to some police officers who invited him to their stations over complaints against him that he was under the protection of the inspector general of police, Mr Abubakar Mohammed.
