The International and diplomatic passports of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Ekanem Oyo-Ita, who is currently being investigated for alleged N3billion fraud, has been seized by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC.

 

 

 

Oyo-Ita is being investigated over alleged abuse of duty tour allowance, money laundering and alleged theft of government funds.

 

 

 

The Nation reports that Oyo-Ita’s movement has been restricted to the country pending the conclusion of investigation.  Although she is hospitalized having complained of being ill, EFCC sources said security operatives had been deployed to monitor her movement within the Abuja hospital where she is currently on admission.

 

 

 

“The latest about the ongoing investigation is that the EFCC has seized the international and diplomatic passports of the Head of Service. In line with normal investigative procedure, we need to restrict her movement to the country to enable her attend more interrogation sessions which have been lined up for her. We are monitoring her progress in the hospital until she is stable enough to come for another round of grilling.

 

We may invite some Permanent Secretaries and others because our investigation shows fresh clues during analysis of letters of award of contracts in some ministries, departments and agencies. All the accounts of the affected companies have been placed under watch till they are clear of any infraction.” an EFCC source said
