Corruption extreme: Government official caught hiding N2 billion cash in his house.

Published

on

Mr Abdulrasheed Maina, The chairman, Pension Reform Task Team, shocked officials of Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) on Thursday with the revelation of how the pension reform task team caught a high ranking civil servant in the pension unit at the office of the Head of Service with of N2 billion stashed in his private residence.

The Head of Pension Reform Task Team while updating officials of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission at the ICPC national headquarters on the progress by the team in recovering looted pension funds, disclosing that the team had recovered the total sum of N151 billion meant to have been looted by officials responsible managing the pension funds.

Mr. Maina also narrated how another civil servant was caught with ’a pile of dollars’ in his house.

He emphasized that some government officials had over the years been involved in senseless looting of the pension arrears of helpless retirees, many of whom had died while many others were stricken with ailments arising from denial of their pensions by government officials.

He said the offenders had been arrested and were already undergoing the process of prosecution.

He added that those arrested so far had had the properties they bought with looted funds, including private buildings, offices, hotels, shopping malls, confiscated by the Federal Government.

According to him, the team, in conjunction with the EFCC, had traced and recovered a total of N35 billion and another N15 billion worth of properties from the “very few corrupt government officials in the office of the Head of Service, Pension Department.“

The acting chairman of ICPC, Ekpo Nta, expressed happiness at the activities of the Reform Team.

Mr. Ekpo vowed to ensure that anyone found culpable of mismanaging the pension arrears would not go free, just as he said ICPC would like to bring the outcome of the intervention by the Reform Task Team to the public domain.

    The problem is the Government has not been sincere in the struggle against corruption. This person should be publicly disgraced, brought down to nothing and jailed for years. Such treatment would surely deterred the others but, why would the people in government make such rule afterall, they could fall a victim tomorrow.

    The issue is this, Nigerian leaders and office holders have sold their souls to the devil. At this level, Only God can come to the rescue of this nation by visiting their wickedness. Only the devil will steal from the poor and withold what is due to thousands of people! Surprisingly these thieves are deacons in churches or imams and malams in the mosques!

    Why shuld people be surprised about this little token? Nigerian citizens are not readily informed about the lootings going in this country. #2b is a chicken change to those who made looting their professional careers. Even those people investigating and those who are prosecuting are highly corrupt officials that’s why we don’t get a reasonable results at the end of the whole dramas. None, and I repeat, none of our govt officials is looting free. Those who came into the office newly and discovered what is going on and cannot join them, they push those people out of the office and alleged them with one allegations or the other to make sure they never come back to the officie. Look at how innocent citizens are dying of hunger and starvation everyday, people dying in the hospital for lack of medical treatments, people getting frustrated in their little businesses due to the mess they usually made our economy to look. The youths of the country are wasting without been useful to the land where they came out from. Any country who have no jobs for it’s citizens especially the youths, is bound to fail without remedy. Every govt officials especially those in higher positions ranging from the presidency to the ward councillors are highly corrupt and deserves to die by hanging. People say “GOD HELP US” God had already helped us by making those things we have 2day available to us. He cannot physically put those things in our mouths for consumption we are the ones to harness them.

“Oke Wasn’t Killed By Stray Bullet, He Was Stabbed By Thugs” - Brother Claims
Oke

Oke

Information Nigeria recalls a graphics designer identified as Oke, was killed hours after tweeting “Nigeria will not kill me” on Wednesday.

It was reported that the young man had passed away after he was hit by a stray bullet.

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
