A female senior official with the Kwara State Ministry of Finance has been arrested for defrauding people in the guise of securing employment for them with the Federal Civil Service.
Mrs Olajumoke Rhoda Oyawoye, a Level 14 officer, has collected money totalling N3 million from her victims and even went ahead to issue them with fake employment letters of appointment into the Federal Civil Service.
The Gazelle News.com learnt that the woman was collecting N250,000 for employment into the Federal Civil Service and N350,000 for employment into federal parastatals per person.
A victim, The Gazelle News.com gathered, subsequently gave her N2 million to help secure employment into the Immigration Service for his children and some church members.
The victims subsequently petitioned the Ilorin Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
“On September 2018, I discovered that all what she said was false and the people she collected money from through me were pestering me to return their money back and she kept giving serious of excuses,” one of the petitioners alleged.
Subsequently, the petitions were investigated and her arrest effected. Items recovered in her house include, Curriculum Vitaes of her victims, offer letters of appointments of both the Kwara State Civil Service Commission and Federal Parastatals among others.
She will soon be arraigned in court.
