Reports reaching us suggested that a whopping N23 billion has been allegedly siphoned into the bank account of a Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) staff.
Per what we gathered, the money was found in the account of a Level 12 officer with the security and anti-graft agencies commencing investigations.
Additionally, some relevant documents that captured some illicit transactions were found and immediately sent to the National Assembly.
The civil servant whose account is at the center of this controversy is from a North-West State and the alleged diverted funds were detected via the BVN.
One source indicated that;
“The personal BVN of the said officer was tied to the slush account of one of the companies being used.”
When confronted, the officer in question reportedly admitted immediately to have retained N1.8 billion of the money for personal use.
To confirm the validity of the report, another source also said;
“Those involved have been trying to bury the scandal. It is unfortunate that such a huge sum will be laundered in a country where many people cannot feed.
We want the Presidency to get to the root of this scandal. All the suspects are trying to bribe their way through in order to stall investigation of this fraud.”
