Nigerian Law School Indicted on Embezzlement
The management of Nigerian Law School have been ordered to come before the senate to answer the allegations against them concerning outright misappropriation, diversion of pension, spending without approval and embezzlement.
In a report submitted to the senate committee on Public Account by the Office of the Auditor General of the Federation, the financial irregularities were uncovered.
The Office of the Auditor General uncovered that in 2013 alone, 36 million naira was paid through the account of one of the staff on behalf of 52 other staff members, as dressing allowance.
Prof. Isa Chiroma, The Director-general of the Nigerian Law School, when summoned, couldn't present a defence to the senate panel to drop the query.
An unknown cleaner was also paid 32 million naira over a period of 12 months and another 34.3 million naira went for the training of staff without the Federal Government's approval. Other expenses were made and termed as pension funds but weren't actually related to payment of pension.
