The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) will on Monday (today) arraign a former Minister of Interior, Mr. Abba Moro, before a Federal High Court in Abuja.

The spokesperson for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, told our correspondent in a terse message that Moro would be charged on 11 counts bordering on obtaining money by false pretences, procurement fraud and money laundering before Justice Chikere.

According to the anti-graft agency, Moro allegedly defrauded graduate applicants of N676,675,000 during the 2014 Nigeria Immigration Service recruitment, during which no fewer than 20 job seekers lost their lives.

Also to be arraigned alongside the ex-minister are a former Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Interior, Anastasia Nwobia; F.O. Alayebami and Drexel Tech Nigeria Limited. - Punch.
