EFCC Arrests ‘PILOT’ For N1bn Fraud In Kaduna


Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Kaduna State Zonal Command, have arrested one Nuhu Haruna for an alleged fraudulent transaction to the tune of N1bn.

The anti-graft agency, in a tweet on Wednesday via its X handle, stated that Haruna’s arrest followed a petition by an unnamed person in December 2023, who “was introduced to the suspect for the purpose of a foreign exchange transaction involving N1,020,000.00,”

The EFCC noted that the petitioner “allegedly” paid the said amount into Haruna’s account for its dollar equivalent.

However, the petitioner “explained that the suspect furnished him with evidence of payments made which turned out to be false as he never received the dollar equivalent.”
