According to Daily Watch investigations Mounir Gwarzo is said to have not only pay himself 194 million but in conjunction with other two senior officers of SEC in the persons of Mr. Abdususalam Naïf Habu and head of SEC Media Division and Mrs. Anasteasia Omozele Braimoh head Legal department used over seventy Companies two carry out several Financial improprieties and pilfering of several Millions from the SEC.
The trio who are also said to be under the searchlights of the Nation

Already the investigations of the SEC DG seem to be creating serious
wave and tension not just in the seat of power but all over the

Northern part of the Country calling on the Minister to not only
revoke the said suspension with immediate effect or in the alternative let the investigations run in such a way that the DG must come out unblemished .

over the use of seven registered companies from which the wife and
cronies were said to have used in fleecing Sec of several Millions was
not possible but the Deputy Director of Press Federal Ministry of
Finance confirmed to Suspension and investigations of the trio based
on normal Civil Service rules and Regulations’.
