Two prosecution witnesses appeared before the Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday, narrating how the sum of N675,675,000 realised from 675,675 applicants who applied for job placement at Nigerian Immigration Service in 2014, was shared.
The two were testifying as the fifth and sixth prosecution witnesses in the ongoing trial of the then Minister of Interior, Abba Moro, and others on charges of recruitment fraud.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had instituted 11 counts against Moro; a former permanent secretary in the ministry, Mrs. Anastasia Daniel-Nwobia; and a deputy director in the ministry, Mr. Femi Alayebami.
The other defendant is Drexel Tech. Nigeria Limited, a firm that carried out the NIS recruitment exercise on behalf of the ministry.
