  8. The Director of Administration in Adamawa State Health Management Board (ASHMB), Halilu Abba, has been taken before the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) allegedly for forging a Master’s degree certificate. According to TheNation, Halilu is alleged to have tendered the document, issued by the Adamawa State University, Mubi, in 2013 to gain promotion into the office of Director of Administration in the Board, following which the ICPC, after a complaint to it, made its investigation and found that the degree was not validly issued to him. Investigations showed that he had actually been a student in the university but did not complete the Master’s programme. A document on the case indicates that he had instead sent a letter, on June 17, 2019, to the institution requesting to complete the programme. The matter was blown open by whistleblowers who, in a letter dated May 28, 2019, alerted the ICPC, which in turn wrote to the university on June 11, 2019, to verify the truth. The management of the university, in a letter signed by its registrar, Yahya J Bobboi, said the candidate who was of the Department of Public Administration of the Postgraduate School of the university, had MPA 7091 (Research Methodology) as outstanding carryover as of July, 2019. “The statement of result issued on 4th September, 2013 was issued without the candidate completing the MPA programme,” the university said. The ICPC has evidently responded to the reply from the university by demanding the immediate prosecution of Halilu. And the ‘concerned citizens’ who blew the whistle against the embattled officer are said to have told Governor Ahmadu Fintiri through the Head of Service to act appropriately, especially against a history of forgeries in government circles, including a celebrated case, just before the exit of the last administration, of a secondary school leaver who, using someone else’s medical qualification, practiced for years as a doctor under the state government. Halilu Abba could not be reached for comment, as he repeatedly shifted requests for interview. View full news

  10. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibadan zonal office, has arrested one Kehinde Olumide Agbabiaka, a sales agent of Fidelity Bank Plc. According to a statement from the EFCC, Agbabiaka’s arrest was sequel to a a petition jointly penned by the bank’s Regional Security Officer and the Cluster Control and Compliance Manager, in which it was alleged that the suspect suppressed, diverted and stole a total sum of N137,000,000 (One Hundred and Thirty-Seven Million Naira) from personal and corporate accounts of a customer in Ibadan. Filed on August 20, 2019, the petition alleged that Agbabiaka committed the offence between January 2017 and July 2019. The suspect, who was the account officer attached to the customer, was said to be visiting the business premises of the victim weekly to collect cash with the understanding that he would remit same to his accounts domiciled in the bank’s Challenge, Ibadan branch. But, instead of depositing the money, Agbabiaka was said to have at different times remitted only a portion and on many occasions diverted the whole sum to personal use. In order to cover his criminal acts, the suspect, according to the petition, would rather issue fictitious bank slips to deceive the customer that he truly deposited the sums. This continued until the customer reviewed the statement of his account and reconciled the same with the cash collection register. It was then they discovered Agbabiaka’s fraudulent deeds, prompting the bank to put up the petition. So far, the EFCC investigators have established a prima facie case of diversion and stealing against the suspect. Further investigations also revealed that he had used the suppressed sums to build houses, purchase cars, invest in fixed deposits and insurance policies. He also gave part of the loot to people as friendly loans. Some of the items have been recovered and registered as exhibits. The antigraft agency says he will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded. View full news
