EFCC collects BVN details of FAAN directors, audit head over N70 million fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has collected the Bank Verification Number (BVN) details of four directors of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and the head of the agency’s audit in relation to ongoing investigation of N100million fraud.

This is just as Nigerianflightdeck.com has learned that the prime suspect of the investigation, Ms Christy Olabode is being held in Abuja.

Nigerianflightdeck.com learned that some of the directors whose BVNs details were collected included the Director of Maintenance and Engineering, Olufemi Ogunode, Director of Human Resources, Hajia Salamatu Umar-Eluma, Director of Administration, Ikechi Uko and Director of Operations, Captain Henry Omeogu.

Also invited to Abuja by EFCC was one Mr. Njoku, the Head of Audit at FAAN.

The anti-grant agency collected the BVNs of the directors in order to determine whether there had been any financial transactions between the top management staff and the suspects.

Recall that the EFCC in a statement by spokesman said Ms Christy Olabade, her younger brother, Abdul-Shehu Obaze, who is a staff at the Commercial Department of FAAN in Ilorin, Kwara State and an IT officer at FAAN Headquarters, Lagos, Dominic Ojo, were also arrested.

The anti graft agency also revealed that Mr. Obaze was found to have maintained not less than eight accounts in seven new generation banks, which were used to receive the funds for onward distribution to “several high ranking officers within the FAAN”.

Upon interrogation, Obaze, a level nine officer, confessed that other FAAN officials were involved in the massive fraud it is probably against this backdrop that BVN of some directors and heads were demanded by the EFCC.
