The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested three staff of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) following their arrest by for allegedly stealing N100 million.

The EFCC in a statement revealed that the fraud was carried out over a period of three years by a level six officer of the Accounts Department of FAAN, Christy Olabode, her younger brother who worked in the Commercial Department of the agency in Ilorin, Kwara State, Abdul-Shehu Obaze, and an IT officer at FAAN headquarters, in Lagos, Dominic Ojo.

According to the EFCC, the arrest followed an anonymous petition alleging that the individuals diverted the funds by inserting names of non-FAAN staff into the payroll.

It adds that when questioned, Mr Obaze revealed that other FAAN officials are also involved in the fraud. (Channels TV)
