The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission-EFCC says it has arrested the Federal Pay Officer in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State for alleged diversion of N1.8 million.
A statement issued by the Spokesman of the commission, Wilson Uwujaren, identified the suspect as John Shiftanure.
Uwujaren said Shiftanure was picked up at the Federal Pay Office in Uyo after its operatives “stormed” the place.
He accused the suspect of abuse of office and failure to remit the N1.8 million to the Akwa Ibom State Board of Internal Revenue Service and said the case would be charged to court upon conclusion of investigation.
