Winifred Oyo-Ita

Immediate-past Head of Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, has been arraigned for N3bn fraud by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at the Federal High Court in Abuja. 

Oyo-Ita alongside eight others on March 23 pleaded not guilty to 18 count charges of fraud. 

Others arraigned along with Oyo-Ita are Frontline Ace Global Services Limited; Asanaya Projects Limited; Garba Umar and his companies, Slopes International Limited; Gooddeal Investments Limited; Ubong Okon Effiok and his own company, U and U Global Services Limited and Prince Mega Logistics Limited.

The ex-HOS was sacked in September last year after about N600m was allegedly found in the bank account of her aide.

EFCC investigations reportedly traced about N3bn to Oyo-Ita said to be kickbacks on contracts, illegal estacodes and duty tour allowance received from the government.
