Counsel to ICPC, Anas Mohammed Kolo told the court that the convict in October 2015, awarded a N4.9 million contract to Falkwat Multilinks Limited to supply 40,000 litres of diesel to the flour mill, also , while being a public servant, he awarded several contracts between 2016 and 2017 to his private company to supply maize to Maiduguri Flour Mills Limited.
