All is set for the trial of former Minister of Interior Abba Moro, a former Permanent Secretary and a director over the N650million proceeds of the Immigration recruitment scandal. The three suspects were re-invited by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) ahead of their arraignment in court today by the anti-graft agency.
The fate of a former Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), Mr. David Parradang, was unknown as at press time. About 6.5million applied for 5,000 immigration jobs but the conduct of the test in March, 2014 led to the death of 15 applicants. Scores were injured in stampede in Abuja, Port Harcourt and Minna. Each applicant paid N1,000.
