The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has indicated another 400 ghost teachers in Kwara State.
EFCC revealed this on Friday, June 19, 2020 at the zonal office residing in Ilorin Kwara State.
This follows the last week announcement of the commision that about 1000 ghost workers were discovered on the payroll of Kwara State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB).

According to the commision, N31,000,000 (Thirty One Million Naira only) which is meant for the payment of the salaries of these ghost workers, was allegedly shared.
The alleged beneficiaries of the shared money are the Kwara State Chairman of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT), Salihu Idris Toyin and the Permanent Secretary of SUBEB, Bayo Audu Onimago, and some others.
Other beneficiaries of the money include, Director of Finance, SUBEB, Ahmed Husain, Coordinator, NUJ, Kwara State, Tijani Idris and Controller of Finance, SUBEB, Omole John.
However, EFCC reported that one of the beneficiaries with the name Idris Toyin, has confessed of their heinous deeds.
Toyin was reportedly told the commision that:
“A sum of N12million was paid into an account operated by me and others, the money was actually not supposed to come but when the cash hit the account, I withdrew it and gave it to SUBEB Officials, they gave us N3million for free and we shared it among ourselves.”
“We also received another N19million. I withdrew N4million from it, I used N1.5million for clearing and interlocking of our quarters, the remaining N2.5million is still with me”.
Further on the confession, Toyin revealed that the money spent on the clearing and interlocking of the quarters was not recorded.
