BREAKING NEWS: EFCC Arrests Former Minister Abba Moro for 2014 Immigration Recruitment SCAM!

Nigeria’s anti-graft agency has arrested a former interior minister in connection with a failed recruitment process that resulted in the death of around 20 jobseekers in 2014.

Patrick Abba Moro, who served as minister of the interior under former President Goodluck Jonathan, was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) along with two others on Monday evening, Nigeria’s Premium Times reported. An EFCC official confirmed Moro’s arrest to Newsweek via telephone.

Moro is being questioned in relation to a recruitment process for the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) that took place during his tenure. Hundreds of thousands of applicants attended recruitment drives for the NIS across the country on March 15, 2014. At the Abuja National Stadium in Nigeria’s capital, tens of thousands of jobseekers trying to get into the stadium to take recruitment tests caused a stampede that resulted in the deaths of at least seven people, the BBC reported. Other deaths were also reported in various parts of the country.
