Former NSITF Chief, Ngozi Olojeme Held For Alleged $48.5m Fraud

The former campaign chief of Nigeria’s ex-president Goodluck Jonathan has been arrested for allegedly stealing $48.5m from state coffers to fund his failed 2015 re-election bid, an official said Tuesday.




Ngozi Olojeme was head of Nigerian Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) and siphoned off this amount from the fund, an official from the national anti-corruption agency EFCC told AFP.

“She is in our custody for an alleged fraud totally $48,485,127 belonging to NSITF,” he said, and added that the EFCC had also seized 38 properties traced to Olojeme.

“The properties have been placed under an interim forfeiture in line with a court injunction pending further investigation and trial,” he said.

Key members of the Jonathan administration have been arrested and charged with corruption by the government of President Mohammadu Buhari, who won the 2015 election.

Buhari’s electoral pledges included a promise to rid Nigeria of endemic corruption which has stunted its growth.

Critics have accused Buhari of a witch-hunt as only members of the opposition have been targeted in the corruption campaign.

She was very close to the late CSO to Jonathan (Gordon Obua) and according to the rumor, they said she was the last person he saw at the hotel before he was rushed to hospital and died. I'm sure she has some of his money with her too. With all the money Gordon Obua made, he didn't get to enjoy it and you wonder if it is worth it. After all what is the essence of gaining the world and lose your soul
