NIS recruitment: Ex-Immigration boss tells court how each comptroller got N300,000

Mr. David Paradang

A former Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Immigration Service, NIS, Mr. David Paradang has told a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja that Comptrollers in each state of the federation, “received alert of N300, 000.00” a day before the conduct of the botched recruitment exercise that claimed about 20 lives.

Paradang, who insisted that he was not fully carried along by the former Minister of Interior, Mr. Abba Moro alleged that the “alert” was sponsored by the company the ex-Minister, Moro, awarded the contract to recruit for the NIS, Drexel Tech Nigeria Ltd.

The former NIS boss disclosed this while testifying before the trial judge, Nnamdi Dimgba as the star prosecution witness, PW-1, of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, which is prosecuting the former Minister over alleged N676million job scam.

Those equally on trial over the alleged recruitment fraud are the former Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Interior, Mrs. Anastasia Daniel-Nwobia and a ‎Deputy Director in the Ministry, Mr. F. O Alayebami. The defendants, charged alongside the firm, are answering to an 11-count charge.
