Former top Nigerian Civil Servant acquitted of fraud

A former Head of Service of the Nigerian Federation, Stephen Oronsaye, has been discharged and acquitted of the two billion naira ($4.3m) fraud charge filed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Mr. Oronsaye was in 2015 arraigned alongside the Managing Director of Frederick Hamilton Global Services Limited, Osarenkhoe Afe on allegations of corruption.

They were accused of using two companies – Frederick Hamilton Global Services Limited, and Xangee Technologies Limited – for dubious biometrics enrolment in the N2 billion fraud.

However, during the ruling on Monday, the court discharged and acquitted Oronsaye of the charges levelled against him by the anti-graft agency.
