Reports say the sum of N292m was found in the bank account of a Permanent Secretary, who was recently retired by President Buhari.

Punch Newspapers reports that the money was discovered during an investigation by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

According to Punch, an ICPC source said “It is true that the ICPC is probing the activities of the permanent secretaries. About N292m was traced to the account of one of the recently retired permanent secretaries.

“The commission has concluded investigating some of the permanent secretaries while others are still being investigated. For those that we have concluded investigations on them, we have sent their files to relevant places for action.

“It is not exactly true that those who were not sacked by the President in the recent exercise are innocent. They are also being investigated.”
