Police Task Force quiz Jimoh Ibrahim
The embattled business tycoon and chairman of Air Nigeria and National Mirror , Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim, was yesterday interrogated for almost 5 hours by the Nigeria Police in the Federal Capital Territory-Abuja forseveral allegations levelled against him and his Airline operating in Nigeria.
Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim who is also fighting another battle in the other arm of his publishing Business where Charlyboy has dragged his National Mirror’s newspaper to court for Libel was equally wanted by the Nigerian police in relation to a petition written by Air Nigeria’s former Executive Director (Finance), Mr. John Nnorom, accusing Air

It was revealed that EFCC investigators have also gotten hold of financial information from the office of the Accountant General of the federation indicating that N10 billion approved for pensioners was diverted to personal fund by Mr. Ibrahim in order to acquire a private firm. The deal was said to have been manipulated by a US based law firm.

Dailypost has gathered reliably that Mr. Ibrahim is planning to sack over 90 percent of his employees both in the Airline Section and the
publishing section as a result of the battle he faces at the moment.
