Top civil servants use multiple ATM cards to defraud government – Gov. Shettima

Borno State governor, Kashim Shettima, has revealed that senior civil servants in the state colluded with commercial bank officials to defraud the state.

Gov. Shetttima made the disclosure about financial fraud perpetrated by senior civil servants while speaking to news in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital on the ongoing salary verification controversy that has stalled the salary of workers for July.

He said, “These crop of senior civil servants would own dozens of such ATMs with which they use to collect salaries on behalf of these ghost workers.

“We have been able to uncover how some civil servants would give some persons just N2000 to open accounts as civil servants and bring the ATM to them. Some have up to 40 of such ATM cards for salary accounts with them.

“Now that the banks are helping us to expose the criminals, we have warned that any of them that collude with any top shot in the civil service will have the full weight of the laws descending on them. We’re going to delist them from the list of banks from our service.”
