The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has arraigned one Dairo Seun for a N11.3m fraud.

Seun was arraigned before Justice A. B. Mohammed of the FCT High Court, Jabi, on eight counts bordering on theft, criminal breach of trust and advance fee fraud.

The EFCC said he was arrested after the Ministry of Finance petitioned the agency in February 2016 requesting for “payroll fraud investigation” as part of efforts to unravel various techniques used by fraudsters to defraud the Nigerian government by way of ghost workers.

According to the anti-graft agency, Seun, who goes by various aliases including Momoh Hassan, Umar Musa and Umar Obele Musa, is alleged to have connived with one Saliu Olashola (aka Nokia), to commit the fraud between 2013 and 2017.

He is accused of stealing N5,673,503.64 from the Federal Government by creating fictitious accounts for salaries and allowances, using his various aliases, an offence contrary to Section 287 of the Penal Code Act, Laws of Federation 2004.
