EFCC: Recovers N65m In Zamfara INEC Office

The Sokoto Zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC carried out an operation at the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in Zamfara State leading to the recovery of N65, 548, 000 (Sixty-five Million, Five Hundred and Forty-eight Thousand Naira).

The money in higher denominations of Naira notes was recovered from two fireproof safes during a search in the offices of the head of Accounts and Cashier of INEC in the state.

The recovered fund is suspected to be part of the funds illegally deducted from releases meant to cater for the movement of materials and electoral officials as well as provision of chairs, tables and canopies for the 2019 governorship and presidential elections in the state.
