EFCC Uncovers Missing ₦17bn In Humanitarian Ministry

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission have uncovered a fresh fraud of N17bn linked to the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development.

This is coming after EFCC officials who were originally working on the alleged N585 million fraud, which led to the suspension of Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Betta Edu, were shocked to uncover some previously unreported cases totaling N17bn, while, investigations are continuing on the matters involving the former minister in the ministry during the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, Hajia Sadiya Umar-Farouk, and the suspended Chief Executive Officer of the National Social Investment Programme Agency, Hajia Halima Shehu.

The EFCC said, Shehu had been cooperating well with investigators and that N30 billion of the N37bn traced to Umar-Farouk has been recovered.
