Niger State has discovered over N800 million monthly fraud in the ongoing verification exercise to authenticate the state workforce.

The consultant carrying out the verification during investigation led by Sa’adat Bakrin- Ottun discovered the fraud in the Niger State Hospital Management Board (HMB).

A nominal roll showing the job description of each employee in the hospital and requested for by the consultant to ascertain the salary scale used for their earnings showed some anomalies that had led to loss of huge funds.

It was discovered that those issuing cards to patients needing doctors’ attention and other groups earned salaries higher than that of their department grade level. They reportedly earned over N332,000 monthly instead of a supposed salary of N56,821.

This according to findings resulted into loss of over 800 million Naira per month in only HMB.
