Corruption extreme: Government official caught hiding N2 billion cash in his house.

Mr Abdulrasheed Maina, The chairman, Pension Reform Task Team, shocked officials of Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) on Thursday with the revelation of how the pension reform task team caught a high ranking civil servant in the pension unit at the office of the Head of Service with of N2 billion stashed in his private residence.

The Head of Pension Reform Task Team while updating officials of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission at the ICPC national headquarters on the progress by the team in recovering looted pension funds, disclosing that the team had recovered the total sum of N151 billion meant to have been looted by officials responsible managing the pension funds.

Mr. Maina also narrated how another civil servant was caught with ’a pile of dollars’ in his house.

He emphasized that some government officials had over the years been involved in senseless looting of the pension arrears of helpless retirees, many of whom had died while many others were stricken with ailments arising from denial of their pensions by government officials.

He said the offenders had been arrested and were already undergoing the process of prosecution.

He added that those arrested so far had had the properties they bought with looted funds, including private buildings, offices, hotels, shopping malls, confiscated by the Federal Government.

According to him, the team, in conjunction with the EFCC, had traced and recovered a total of N35 billion and another N15 billion worth of properties from the “very few corrupt government officials in the office of the Head of Service, Pension Department.“

The acting chairman of ICPC, Ekpo Nta, expressed happiness at the activities of the Reform Team.

Mr. Ekpo vowed to ensure that anyone found culpable of mismanaging the pension arrears would not go free, just as he said ICPC would like to bring the outcome of the intervention by the Reform Task Team to the public domain.

  • The problem is the Government has not been sincere in the struggle against corruption. This person should be publicly disgraced, brought down to nothing and jailed for years. Such treatment would surely deterred the others but, why would the people in government make such rule afterall, they could fall a victim tomorrow.

  • Why shuld people be surprised about this little token? Nigerian citizens are not readily informed about the lootings going in this country. #2b is a chicken change to those who made looting their professional careers. Even those people investigating and those who are prosecuting are highly corrupt officials that’s why we don’t get a reasonable results at the end of the whole dramas. None, and I repeat, none of our govt officials is looting free. Those who came into the office newly and discovered what is going on and cannot join them, they push those people out of the office and alleged them with one allegations or the other to make sure they never come back to the officie. Look at how innocent citizens are dying of hunger and starvation everyday, people dying in the hospital for lack of medical treatments, people getting frustrated in their little businesses due to the mess they usually made our economy to look. The youths of the country are wasting without been useful to the land where they came out from. Any country who have no jobs for it’s citizens especially the youths, is bound to fail without remedy. Every govt officials especially those in higher positions ranging from the presidency to the ward councillors are highly corrupt and deserves to die by hanging. People say “GOD HELP US” God had already helped us by making those things we have 2day available to us. He cannot physically put those things in our mouths for consumption we are the ones to harness them.

  • The book of Eccl 8:11.says becos sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily,therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.If govt want dis evil to stop they should deal with them without mercy as example to the rest evil corrupt civil servants.
