Discovery of N65m: Why we raided INEC Zamfara office – EFCC speaks

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has spoken on the raid of Zamfara office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and discovery of four Ghana must-go bags filled with money.
EFCC on Wednesday raided and took away four ‘Ghana-must-go’ bags containing money to the tune of N65,548,000 at INEC office in Gusau in continuation of its investigation over alleged non payment of ad hoc staff who conducted the 2019 general election.

Speaking on the development, EFCC in a series of posts on its official Twitter page, said the raid was carried out following a petition by one of the INEC ad-hoc staff during the 2019 presidential and gubernatorial elections in Zamfara State.

EFCC said the staff alleged that the Adhoc INEC officials were denied payment of their N6,000 movement allowances each for the two elections.

The anti-graft agency added that the suspects responsible will be charged and arraigned in court soon, adding that the money is suspected to be “40% illegally deducted on funds released to INEC Zamfara office to cater for the rent of Canopies, Tables and Chairs and also funds for RAC (Registration Area Center) and movement of men and materials to Polling Units, by the HOD Accounts & Cashier.”(Dailypost)
