Alleged N919m fraud: EFCC quizzes NHIS managers, invites contractors

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has grilled a few managers and invited some contractors of the National Health Insurance Scheme.

It was learnt on Monday that more officials had also been invited by the EFCC to explain their role in the N919m fraud allegedly perpetrated by the recently reinstated Executive Secretary of the NHIS, Prof. Usman Yusuf.

 Some officials of the NHIS were also said to have accepted bribes from contractors.


For instance, in a report submitted to the EFCC by a panel set up by the Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, it was alleged that a contractor, GK Kanki Foundation, was directed by one of the managers at the NHIS to pay N2.8m into a Skye Bank account with number 1040569204 belonging to one Magaji Garba.
