EFCC arrests ex-Minister, Abba Moro, two others over 2014 immigration recruitment scam

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Monday arrested a former Minister of Interior, Abba Moro, over the Nigerian Immigration recruitment scam in which no fewer than 20 job seekers died.

Also arrested by the anti-graft agency were former Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Anaesthesia Nwaobia, and a deputy director who allegedly facilitated the scam.

A source at the commission, who cannot be named because she is not authorised to speak on the matter, told PREMIUM TIMES the three suspects were picked up in the evening.

“They were brought into the commission’s headquarters today and will be arraigned on a 12-count charge in the Federal High Court Abuja on Tuesday,” the source said.

Some of the charges against Mr. Moro and his colleagues include obtaining by false pretence, procurement offences, corrupt practices and money laundering.

At least nine job seekers died on March 15, 2014 at the Abuja National Stadium while scrambling to secure seats for a recruitment test into the Nigerian Immigration Service.

The stampede ensued after the over 200,000 job seekers scrambled through a poorly organized barricade at the stadium.

In Port Harcourt, Rivers State, four applicants died from the stampede while 12 others sustained injuries and were rushed to Rivers government-owned Braithwaite Memorial Hospital.

After the March 15 tragedy, several Nigerians demanded the resignation or dismissal of Mr. Moro and the Comptroller-General of Immigration, David Parradang, as well as their criminal prosecution for involuntary homicide.

They were accused of putting in place a sham recruitment process that enabled the interior ministry to extort at least N520 million in compulsory levy imposed on applicants.

The minister, who initially blamed impatience and refusal by applicants to abide by instructions for the tragedy, later accepted responsibility for the incident.

He, however, refused to step down.

Speaking on a Channels TV’s breakfast programme, Sunrise, on October 20, 2014, Mr. Moro made it clear he would not resign, saying he would rather stay put in office to clear the mess caused by the incidence.

“The point at which we are now is not about resignation. That time has gone,” Mr. Morro said in response to a question over why he refused to quit.

“At the time (people were calling for his resignation), I think emotions were very high. I was in the eye of a storm.

“At that time, a lot of options were on the table… The issue is do you resign or do you stay to sort out the problem that have been created?

“I decided that staying and mopping up the mess caused by the lack of proper implementation of our plans is better. That’s the point we are now.”

The minister said Nigerians should consider the tragedy as an accident which he too did not plan for or envisage.

“I also have families. I didn’t set out on that journey knowing that accident would occur that would lead to the death of human beings.

“We took everything into proper perspective. If we had succeeded, a few Nigerians would have congratulated us for the job well done.”

      With lawyers like Ricky Tarfa and Judges like Injustice Yunusa my brother it will be very hard before we will start seeing convictions. These men who lack honor prolong cases with frivolous adjournments and filing of several motions just to ensure that prosecution fatigue sets in. Lets not forget that many of these rich politicians have 10 times the money EFCC has for a whole year. So they can afford to pay 10 SAN’S for a 10 year court case if necessary. Just look at the case of the late Abubakar Audu

    @disqus_LbDXNZcuIv:disqus

    Feel sorry for AKIN AMBODE in Lagos because…..

    Nigeria has started doing the right thing; belatedly. There’s nothing called PAST CRIME in law. All crimes
    are written in present sentence for the purpose of remaining prosecutable at any time. That is why i feel
    sorry for someone like AKIN AMBODE. He may be the MUGU that will go to jail for RAJI FASHOLA whom
    he’s covering up – knowing full well that the accounts Raji Fashola delivered as handover notes are false.
    But the puff-puff looking Akin Ambode has no sense to understand that it is a crime to conceal a felony.

    • tundemash

      Why use panadol for Ambode’s headache Mr. Wailing wailer? If you have any evidence of crime committed anywhere, forward it to the relevant agencies (stealing is corruption now contrary to the gospel preached by the Ineffective Buffon) and stop crying us a river online !

      • Justice For All

        @tundemash:disqus

        A person who receives or assists another who is, to his knowledge guilty of an offence,

        in order to enable him to escape punishment, is said to become an accessory after the fact

        to the offence.

        ………………Section 10 Criminal Code

        THE POINT here IS THAT ON MATTERS OF PUBLIC LAW there is nothing
        personal involved in it. The law urges all citizens to uphold criminal laws for
        Nigeria to be a cohesive society of law-abiding citizens and residents. The
        practice of looking the other way is what’s brought Nigeria into sorrows.
        In America each citizen will grab his phone in a second to report any person
        committing a crime or concealing a crime. That the apogee of civic duty,
        as a sign of responsibility. Americans don’t say they won’t take Panadol
        for the headache of a person committing a crime. That public-spiritedness
        is totally missing in Nigeria explains why there’s been no electricity supply on
        Lagos mainland till now, except for a few minutes of nuisance NEPA flashes.
        Akin Ambode has the compulsory duty to file a complaint at the EFCC now.

        • tundemash

          So aside wailing online, have u grabbed the phone or wrote to EFCC detailing the crime and proof ?

  • MilitaryPolice01

    Now this is what we call justice. Please EFCC take this to a logical conclusion

    • Otile

      How about prior stampedes that cost lives? Are they not going to be investigated too? What kind of partiality is this?

      • tundemash

        What a twat ! Shameless disciple of the Ineffective Buffon who was busy drinking ogogoro at Aso Rock while jobless Nigerians were scammed and killed on his behalf.

          Abubakar tundemash,

          I am not against this particular probe. What I am against is the partiality of Imam’s selective prosecutions. It is ungodly to reward his friends and punish his enemies. If Rotimi and Emma Uduaghan are found defrauding their states, why must Imam exonerate Rotimi Oyenusi rewarding him with a high ministerial appointment while at the same time prosecuting Emma? Does your god Imam have any sense of justice?

          Everyday you are wishing me death, I say to you, back to sender. I will not depart this life until Almighty and Merciful God calls me home to heaven. Abubakar I know you don’t wish me well, but there is nothing you can do about it.

        Can you name the prior stampedes? Lets leave pdp or apc aside and fear God my brother. Abba Moro and co connived to organize a sham recruitment process and in the process poor Nigerians lost their lives and we are talking about partiality? haba

      • Action Group

        Which previous stampede are you talking of? The one that is recent and fresh in Nigeria memory is that of immigration service. Stop your distraction and allow justice to prevail.

        • Otile

          Did you commit lobotomy? Can’t you remember other deadly stampedes that took place during Obasanjo, and Yar’Adua interregnum? Don’t forget tragedies of national importance, please don’t. Again, don’t forget the genocide. Rejuvenate your memory.

      • Paul Young

        So a crime shouldn’t be investigated and prosecuted because of ‘partiality’? Well you should know that the problem is not the stampede in itself. Hundreds if not thousands of people died in a stampede in mecca last year during the hajj. Stampede is no crime. The crime in this case is the collection of money from applicants and not organizing the exercise properly thus leading to loss of lives of human beings like you. It is called NEGLIGENT HOMICIDE. My brother please stop defending bad things just because you cant stand the fact your Ijaw brother lost election. Buhari is your President for the next four years at least. You better deal with it. Except of course you dont want Nigeria to be a better place for your children

        • share Idea

          Please can we extend it to Army with regards to deaths of peaceful Biafran protesters and El-Zaky people in Kaduna. I don’t support corruption but Buhari’s anti-corruption fight is the biggest charade I have ever seen in Nigerian history.

          • Paul Young

          • Fadama

            You are a joke

        • Otile

          Don’t preach to me that partiality should be tolerated simply because Imam Buhari is the one playing partiality. Why can’t he investigate similar stampedes where palm greasing was involved and death ensued under Obasanjo administration?

          The Saudi stampede is no different from this one. Believe it or not money changes hands during the hajj jamboree each time the faithfuls gather for the ritual. Iranian faithfuls pay the most money to congregate closest to the Black Stone of Kabaa. As a Christian man you may not know this, but it is true.

          My point is that Imam should go a head to take action and prevent such tragedies from re-occurring. On the other hand he should not cover up for his tribesmen and political allies while punishing his perceived enemies severely. That’s ungodly.

      • Motherland

        Who was in charge of FG that should have investigated those previous stampedes? Your case has become extremely pathetic and dancing on the brink of derangement.

  • uduakomiri

    EFCC has tasted blood and it will not stop. I am surprised the police, SSS, ICPC, Civil Defence etc are not showing the same zeal and enthusiasm as the EFCC in the fight to rid Nigeria of every known species of corrupt vermin! Stand up and be counted!Anyone who has abused public office in the past 8-16 years should really be worried. I think these corrupt Nigerian officials both past and present should start giving themselves up. In my humble opinion, Buhari’s govt is literally saving past and present Nigerian government officials because with the level of despair, poverty, anger and frustration in Nigeria, a violent uprising is only a matter of time. While it is suggested that Nigerians are some of the most placid, docile people on earth when it comes to challenging the misdeeds and recklessness of those in government, we must be reminded what happened in 1791 in the French slave colony of St Dominguez (now Haiti) where the black slaves revolted against the white slave owners in a bloody revolution. We must remember Burkina Faso, Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Ukraine and Romania. The citizens of these countries were also as docile as Nigerians but one day they felt they’d had enough and unleashed their anger on their oppressors, the rulers and elites. Buhari is only postponing the inevitable. Imagine the fury and carnage on the streets when a third of 180 million Nigerians spill into the streets in a bloody revolt. No army or police would be able to withstand that swarm of angry citizens.

    WAEC Registrar, Dr. Iyi Uwadiae, Replies Kemi Adeosun, Muhammadu Buhari’s Finance Minister:

    1. “It’s not enough to go to the Senate and reel out figures. The minister should know, that what Nigerian students pay to sit for WAEC examinations is simply an operational/management cost, that covers registration, data keeping and management, printing of examination papers, logistics, marking of scripts and production of certificates. And all these cost about N16 billion Naira.

    2. “WAEC examination is not designed as a revenue generating source for the Federal Government. In fact governments in the past subsidized the examination fees, just to encourage education. The N6 billion she talked about is for payment of salaries and overheads for staff of the council.

    3. “However, we do not know the mathematical formula the Honourable Minister used, when she said the summation of N16 billion Naira and N6 billion Naira was N24 billion Naira.

    “I think somebody needs to resit her WAEC mathematics examination. And we in WAEC have offered to give her a free WAEC form in this respect.”

    @uduakomiri:disqus

    Was Goodluck Jonathan hypnotized?

    Goodluck Ebele Jonathan presided over thefts for the most part but he
    delusively believed himself to be doing the duty of a President. From what’s
    uncovered in the Oil sector and in Defence contracts the world will infer that
    Jonathan is a crass thief – and that presumption will resonate in global circles
    unless Jonathan can rebut it with clear and convincing evidence that he was
    hypnotized and lost consciousness all through his infamous time in office as
    president of Nigeria.

    But such argument will need conclusive proof since his approvals on OPL 245
    245 sale money to Malabu’s bank account; and, in this Moro’s Immigration case
    of employment fraud (here at issue) were also laden with fraud, Now, if those two
    examples out of hundreds similar ones were then to be deemed as lucid moments
    of a hapless president drugged to sleep by flatterers – who at outset equated him
    with Barack Obama – there’s no question Jonathan would still be as guilty as hell.

    • t-junction

      Good point. But see! Jonathan was not hypnotized anything. He was fully conscious. He approved
      thefts and encouraged stealing. Full stop. He too can’t deny that. Stop making excuses of hypnotism.
      Jonathan had no honest intention. He went through the motions and made cuts from public contracts.
      If he had any honest intention he’d have come up from day one with a National Conference to start with.

      But when President Buhari now wears partisan glasses to separate APC thefts from PDP thefts,
      the whole society loses, as a collective, since APC members and supporters partake in sharing the loot.
      Nigerians are complaining. Their views must be respected. Nigerians want all corrupt people jailed –
      not just a few ones in one particular political party.

      What exactly does President Muhamadu Buhari expect Nigerians to support today? So far he’s overlooked obvious corruption across the political aisle. But Nigerians are the losers for that. When a PDP member steals the treasury, Nigerians lose. If APC member steals the treasury, Nigerians lose. Either way, Nigerians have no stakes in treasury thefts as a collective of 180 million people living in a badly robbed country.

        Cry me river, you can cry to hell. This is long overdue. Thank God power has change hands.

        Your point is well taken. Let’s use the example of armed robbers that continue to rob your house at will. All attempt to get the police to put a stop to it so far didn’t work.
        A new police IGP came in and started arresting the most recent robbers. The robbery stopped.
        You’re now complaining that he didn’t start the arresting with the robbers that came 7,8 or 12 years ago.
        Please give President Buhari credit for the war on corruption. We can all agree that he left a lot to be desired on the economy, security, power and Boko Haram.

    Thanks Mr. President. That’s the change we’re hoping for.
    Nigerian unemployed youths lost their lives due to the greedy politician. David Mark and Jonathan pretented that that laws didn’t apply to their class.

    Dear God, it’s about time. He’s been walking around free all this time. He will not rot in H= E= L= L= soon enough.

    This arrest is expected. Why? Abba Moro worked hard for David Mark to win Saturdays senate re-run elections held at Marks senatorial zone. That David Mark won the re-run,Abba Moro must be crucified.

    That’s Moro’s sin.

    This is long over due. He should not only be charged with obtaining money by tricks, he also should be charged with murder

  • Artful ºDodger

  • MushinSpeaks

    Moro that should have been in prison since…I hope he get a brutal judgement for the souls he sent to early grave.
