According to statements by effective collaborators and protected witnesses, Chotano businessman Hover Guevara Martínez is a character very close to the Los Chiclayanos group, the circle of countrymen and friends of the president Peter Castle.
Probably, this proximity explains why the Hover company Guevara Martínez, Contadores e Ingenieros Asociados, won four contracts to supervise the execution of drinking water and sanitation works in the districts of Anguía and Tacabamba –in which it has been proven that there were irregularities in the tenders–, and in those of Cutervo and San Luis de Lucma. These projects received funds from the Emergency Decree 102-2021, of October 29, 2021.

Hover Guevara’s company precisely supervised the work of three million soles that the mayor of Anguía, Nenil Medina Guerrero -one of Los Chiclayanos-, awarded to the company of his accomplice, businessman Hugo Espino Lucana.

Hugo Espino Lucana himself told the Special Team of Prosecutors against Corruption of Power that the hiring of technical studies, consulting and supervision were also part of the fraud scheme in the award of public works.
Espino knew it because Nenil Medina hired his company for these purposes.

Guevara also supervised the construction of a rural road for the municipality of Anguía, a work of 19.5 million soles which was awarded without bidding, directly, by Mayor Nenil Medina to Grupo Constructor Parasol, owned by Daniel Obregón Flores. Medina and Obregón are imprisoned for their relationship with the case of fraud in public works tenders.
