N3bn Graft: EFCC to Arraign, Oyo-Ita, Eight Others 

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arraigned the immediate past Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, for alleged N3 billion graft.

She was arraigned before Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja on an eighteen count charge bordering on fraud in relation to DTA, estacodes, conference fees fraud and receiving kick-backs on contracts.

Recall that she was sacked in September last year after about N600 million was allegedly found in the bank account of her aide.

EFCC investigations reportedly traced about N3billion to Oyo-Ita said to be kickbacks on contracts, illegal estacodes and duty-tour allowance received from the government.

Oyo-Ita was arraigned alongside her special assistant, Ubong Effiok; Frontline Ace Global Services Limited; and six others who all pleaded not guilty.
