EFCC recovers 324 houses, documents for Kano pensioners


The Abuja Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has handed over documents of properties and 324 houses recovered for Kano State pensioners to the affected individuals.

The development was a result of an investigation carried out by the EFCC into a N4.1bn Pension Trust Fund denied pensioners by successive Kano State government administrations.

The EFCC probe followed a petition by a group known as “Concerned Kano State Workers and Pensioners,” over the alleged misappropriation of pension funds in the state.

The spokesperson for the anti-graft agency, Dele Oyewale, revealed the development in a statement on Monday.

He noted that the properties were handed over to the affected persons following a final forfeiture order granted by Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.
