JUST IN: Court Convicts Ex-Perm Sec for 2014 Immigration Recruitment

A Federal High Court in Abuja has convicted a former Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Interior, Mrs. Anastasia Daniel-Nwobia in relation to the botched 2014 recruitment exercise in the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS).


Justice Nnamdi Dimgba, in a judgment on Thursday, found Mrs Daniel-Nwobia guilty of breaching the Public Procurement Act (PPA) by not ensuring that the approval of the Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP) was obtained in relation to the contract for the recruitment exercise.


Justice Dimgba discharged and acquitted two other defendants in the case – former Interior Minister, Abba Moro (now a serving Senator) and a Director of Finance in the Ministry, Femi Alaiyebami.


The judge however differed the sentencing of Mrs. Daniel-Nwoba, who was convicted on only count four, till April 27 and ordered that she remain on the bail earlier granted her, pending sentencing.
