His name was published on list of wanted persons released by the anti corruption agency on Thursday May 13.
The spokesman of the ICPC, Azuka Ogugua, in the published notice, announced that Kumo, alongside two other suspects, Tarry Rufus, and Bola Ogunsola, were allegedly involved in the diversion of national housing funds to the tune of $65,000,000.
In the notice, Ogugua said:

He appealed to anyone with useful information on their whereabouts to report to ICPC Headquarters Abuja, any of its state offices or the nearest police station. They can also call the agency on its toll-free lines or send an email to [email protected].
