Former Minister Of Interior Abba Moro's Trial Over NIS Recruitment Scam Adjourned.

Justice Nnamdi Dimgba of a Federal High Court, Abuja on Tuesday, January 28, 2020, adjourned the trial of Abba Moro, a former Minister of Interior to February 25.

Moro is facing prosecution by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) for procurement fraud and money laundering and for allegedly defrauding Nigerian applicants who applied for employment in Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) to the tune of N675,675,000 (Six Hundred and Seventy-five Million, Six Hundred and Seventy-five Thousand Naira). .

The amount represents N1,000 obtained from each applicant through e-payment for the online recruitment exercise on March 15, 2014 - an exercise in which 15 applicants died with scores injured due to the ministry’s shoddy preparations for the exercise. .

He is charged alongside Anastasia Daniel-Nwobia, a former secretary in the ministry, F.O. Alayebami, a deputy director in the ministry, Mahmood Ahmadu, currently at large, and Drexel Tech Nigeria Limited, a firm involved in the ill-fated recruitment exercise.


  1. Since that time! The guy is now a senator and I'm sure some of those survivors who didn't get the job still voted for him because of N700. Nigerians are not ready. I really hope the dead get justice.
