Children as young as eight are being paid teaching salaries in Bauchi, as part of identity fraud, officials discovered.

The scam, which involves drawing the salaries of non-existent civil servants, is widespread, a Source confirmed.

But the government has recently been cracking down, removing thousands of “ghost workers” from its payroll.

Nigeria is Africa’s biggest economy.

It is the continent’s top oil producer, but its economy is currently under huge strain due to the recent collapse in oil prices.

The state has been able to save millions of dollars as a result of an ongoing verification of its workforce, the auditor general for Bauchi said.

Abubakar Gabi said that thousands of workers and pensioners did not appear for an exercise aimed at rooting out ghost workers and claimants. (TVC)
