EFCC arrests Federal Pay Officer for alleged diversion of N1.8m

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission says it has arrested the Federal Pay Officer in Uyo, Akwa Ibom, for alleged diversion of N1.8m. The Spokesman of the commission, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement identified the suspect as Mr John Shiftanure.

Uwujaren said Shiftanure was picked up on Tuesday at the Federal Pay Office in Uyo after its operatives “stormed” the place. He accused the suspect of abuse of office and failure to remit the N1.8m to the Akwa Ibom Board of Internal Revenue Service.

Uwujaren said the case would be charged to the court upon conclusion of the investigation.
