The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has smashed a nine-man syndicate behind N1 billion salary fraud involving 599 ghost workers.

The anti-graft agency has also arrested a couple, Dayo Usman Aliyu and Ronke Usman, who were said to be members of the syndicate.

The couple, who are staff of the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation, were said to have exploited the gaps in the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS).

Another suspected member of the syndicate, Bede Anyanwu, an Accountant with the Federal Ministry of Environment, was quizzed and released on administrative bail.

According to findings made by our correspondent, the EFCC had received a formal complaint from the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, on the huge number of ghost workers. (TVC)
