A source at the office of the Head of Service told our reporter that the EFCC sent a letter through the current head of service inviting the former occupant of the post. The letter asked Mr. Orosanye to appear today at the EFCC’s headquarters in Abuja to face questioning by a team of investigators.

According to a document made avialable to Naija247news the course of investigating one Phina Ukamaka Chidi, a former deputy director of Finance and Accounts in the office of the Head of Service (Pensions),  repeatedly mentioned that Sani Teidi Shaibu, a former director of Pension Accounts in the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, had stated on several occasions that Mr. Orosanye was receiving kickbacks from contractors handling several of the bogus projects used to siphon away and steal pension funds.

Most of the multibillion scams occurred under Mr. Oronsaye’s watch, according to the information before EFCC investigators.

Ironically Mr. Orosanye recently headed a panel to reform the Federal Civil Service. Among other recommendations, the Oronsaye panel called for the scrapping of the EFCC and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC), another agency charged with investigating cases of corruption and prosecuting suspects.
