Civil Servant to Refund 11 Years Salaries over False Employment

A state high court sitting in Jos, has ordered a senior staff of the National Veterinary Research Institute (NVRI), Vom, Plateau State, Muhammed Nasiru, to refund the salaries he received for 11 years as head of administration on appointment.

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) had arraigned him before the court on a two-count charge.

ICPC held that Nasiru was not qualified for the employment based on the fact that he was compulsorily retired from service by the National Judicial Institute (NJI), Abuja, in 2003.

Nasiru was also sentenced to six months imprisonment for false declaration of documents and failure to give accurate documents in seeking employment with NVRI.
