EFCC takes Borno State official, others to court for alleged N517.2m theft

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday said it had charged a top Borno State government official and two others to court for alleged misappropriation of N517.2 million.

The anti-graft agency, in a statement made available to The Guardian in Maiduguri,, said the chief accounting officer of a Borno State agency allegedly inflated prices of products with forged receipts of different companies and also allegedly accumulated N24.49 million purported invoices of a company to procure diesel for the agency.

Spokesman of EFCC regional office, Jamilu Sale, however, apologised to journalists that the sitting of the High Court could not hold because the presiding judge was absent.
