The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says it has concluded plans to go after some outgoing governors and other public officials after May 29.
Speaking with newsmen in Abuja, on Thursday, March 23, EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, said more arrests would be made immediately after May 29.
According to DailyTrust, besides targeting those to be picked at the end of this administration, Bawa also disclosed that at least two ministries are currently under the radar of the commission for fr@udulent activities that border on procurement processes.
“Currently, we’re investigating two ministries where double payments were made. In one of the ministries, the double payments, cumulatively, were about 20 contracts of over N4billion.
These were contracts that were done way back 2018, and then some group of people, so bold, came up with the same narration.
They moved the documents from the file, forged them, and then of course in conspiracy of some civil servants, raised vouchers and pay. How can that happen if we have digitalised procurement processes,” he said.
