07 April 2014, 14:35

Lagos - Eleven officers in the finance, legal and audit departments of the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) have been indicted over a billion naira missing pension fund .

A total sum of over one billion naira has been discovered missing from the Nigerian Railway Corporation Pension Fund over a period of three years.

"A number of staff and other top management personnel of the corporation have already been indicted by NRC management over the missing fund,’’ the source said.

The source said that the revelation came to light after an internal investigation conducted by the management of the corporation on the pension fund.

"It was discovered that through acts of fraud, financial recklessness, miss-appropriation and conspiracy, the said sum was diverted by some officials of the corporation.

"Investigations revealed that the management instituted an internal enquiry into the management of the corporation’s pension fund during which these shocking discoveries were made,” it said.

The source said that the management of NRC had forwarded its report to the new Chairman of the Board, Bamanga Tukur.

The source said that the names of the suspected culprits and recommendations on how to recover the missing fund from the culprits were part of the report.
