The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is hoping to uncover former Gov. Jonah Jang's suspected financial crimes through his son.

A source in the commission reports that investigation into the two-time Plateau governor's financial activities have advanced.

A challenge being faced by the commission however is the lack of cooperation from 'whistleblower' sources.

"We are still pushing sources to see that they reveal things to us but sometimes it is difficult," he said.

The ex governor's case has been proving difficult because Jang may have covered his track's, the EFCC source revealed.

He said, "Most governors learn from their predecessors' mistakes and try to perfect the art of stealing.

"They do it and cover their tracks and it becomes difficult to crack the case.

"Properties are no longer purchased in the names of public officers on this same account.

"I am not the one investigating it but I know the detective in charge of that assignment and the progress made.

"His son (Yakubu Jang) has committed a lot too but we are following it gradually, hoping we would even trace some things back to the father."

Jang, a present Senator representing Plateau Northern zone in the National Assembly was accused of diverting SURE-P, an economic empowerment fund allocated to the state by the FG to the tune of N50bn while serving as governor.

Jang had denied the reports saying if he had such an amount as a person, he would have finished the projects he eventually left behind at the expiration of his tenure in 2015.

The present Governor, Lalong had set up a commission of enquiry into Jang's financial activities while serving as governor.

The report was expected to serve as a blueprint for the investigation of Jang's alleged financial crimes by the relevant bodies.

Whether the documents are anything to go by as far as the EFCC's investigations are concerned, only time will tell.
