N62.3 billion fraud: EFCC releases details of 37 seized properties belonging to Dr. Ngozi Olomeje

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has released a report on the findings in the ongoing investigation into the $48,485,127 fraud case against former Chairman of the Nigerian Social Insurance Trust Fund, Dr. Ngozi Olomeje.

The anti-graft agency which has frozen a total of 30 bank accounts linked to the former NSITF boss has also seized no less than 37 properties belonging to her including one containing a luxury bathroom estimated to be worth between $2million and $4million.

The report released by the agency reads: “That through this process, Dr. Ngozi Olojeme, the then NSITF board chairman, has collected a total sum of $48,485,127 from Mr. Chuka Eze (her account officer at FBN), which cash he collected on her behalf being the dollar equivalent of monies paid to BDCs by NSITF contractors.

“She and others also diverted huge cash allocated for allowances of its staff and compensation to contributors.

“Detectives actually traced some of the NSITF funds in the personal accounts of Olojeme and the former MD, Umar Abubakar.

“For instance Abubakar and others dishonestly converted to N18billion, being contribution from the Federal Government of Nigeria as take-off grants and Employees Compensation Scheme (ECS) for MDAs.

“The said sum was diverted into personal accounts by an e-payment mandate jointly signed by Umar Munir Abubakar and Henry Ekhasomi Sambo.”

The report further revealed details of the ex-NISTF boss’ accounts; “It was discovered that the NSITF accounts in First Bank of Nigeria and other banks have witnessed a total turnover of over N62, 358,401,927 between 2012 and 2015 from the Employee Compensation Scheme contributions.

“That out of the N62bn, the Federal Government contributed N13,600,000,000 while the sum of N48,758,401,927.80 was contributed by the private sector.

“That there were several payments to individuals and companies from the NSITF bank accounts for purported contracts or consultancy services.

“That some individuals and companies that received these payments, in turn, transferred part of the monies directly to the NSITF officials while others transferred huge sums to bureau de change operators who changed them to dollars.”
