The operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, are currently interrogating the immediate past minister of Interior, Abba Moro, over the controversial March 2014 recruitment exercise into the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS).

The controversial exercise which led to the death of about 20 applicants in various recruitment cen-tres across the country, involved fleecing over 520,000 Nigerian graduate applicants to the tune of N520 million.

After the March 15 tragedy, several Nigerians demanded the resignation or dismissal of Mr. Moro and the then Comptroller-General of Immigration, David Parradang, as well as their criminal prosecution for involuntary homicide.

The duo, with Mr. Moro more culpable, had put in place a sham recruitment process that enabled the interior ministry to extort at least N520 million in compulsory levy imposed on applicants.
Sources said the anti-graft had quizzed the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Immigration Service on the same matter.
An official of the EFCC who confirmed the arrest of Mr. Moro said a team of investigators have already begun interrogating him.
