Fraudulent COVID Funds, World Bank Loan Discovered At Humanitarian Ministry, Says EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, says it has discovered fraudulent dealings involving COVID-19 funds, World Bank loan, and Abacha recovered loot at the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs.

In a statement on Sunday, Dele Oyewale, the EFCC spokesperson, said the funds were released to the ministry by the Federal Government to execute poverty alleviation programmes.

The EFCC, which says its recent investigation into the affairs of the ministry has led to the recovery of N32.7 billion and $445,000 so far, added that “suspended officials” of the ministry were linked to the fraudulent practice, promising to bring to book those found wanting.

Last Wednesday, Dr. Betta Edu, the suspended Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, said she has no link with the N30 billion purportedly recovered by the EFCC.
