EFCC interrogates ex-Federal Civil Service director over $16m loot

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari


Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa, says an unnamed former Director in Nigeria’s Civil Service is being questioned for being in possession of $16 million belonging to the Federal Government.

Bawa said this during a sensitization programme in Abuja, on Tuesday, on the eradication of pension fraud in the country.

In his keynote address, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, said the Federal Government is determined to eradicate pension fraud, even as some other speakers at the event pledged their support for the EFCC’s anti pension fraud drive.

Some retirees at the summit demanded contributory pension schemes from state governments.

The summit is targeted to set the tone for the urgent industry-wide reforms needed to deliver an efficient and sustainable pension administration in Nigeria.
