A fresh fraud involving pension funds to the tune of N35 billion has been uncovered in the Office of the Head of Service of the Federation (HoSF). This latest round of scandal is coming few months after the dissolution of the Abdulrasheed Maina-led Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT).

The head of service, Alhaji Bukar Goni Aji, purportedly hijacked the payment of pensioners even before the controversy-riddled Maina task force was unofficially disbanded.

Speaking at a press conference, the media consultant of PRTT, Mr. Olajide Fashikun expressed surprise that the nation’s economic saboteurs, who were bent on destroying the future of retirees, have resorted to using falsified documents to defraud government to the tune of N35bn.

It was learnt that 13 senior civil servants linked to the fresh scam have been picked up and are currently in the custody of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

Confirming the arrests, spokesman of the anti-graft commission, Mr Folu Olamiti said, “I just confirmed that we have carried out a series of investigations in that office.  Specifically, we have been going in and out of that office and have concluded investigations and transferred some of those found wanting to court”.
