EFCC TO QUESTION 120 OGUN STATE TEACHERS OVER 200 MILLION NAIRA LOAN





























One hundred and twenty teachers in public secondary schools in Ogun State have been invited by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to answer questions on a loan of N200m allegedly collected in their names from one of the old generation banks (name withheld) since 2011 and yet to be repaid.
They will be quizzed on Monday at the anti-graft agency’s Lagos office.
The teachers, our correspondent gathered, were invited through the state’s Teaching Service Commission.
The teachers, most of whom teach in secondary schools in Abeokuta South Local Government area of the state, allegedly obtained N200m loans from the bank since 2011 and defaulted in repayment.
Our correspondent gathered that the teachers had denied ever borrowing any loan from the bank, and a majority of them had no accounts with it.
A source in TESCOM, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, confirmed the invitation by the EFCC but he maintained that the commission (TESCOM) had no account with the bank.
The source said the state government had made available buses and legal team that would accompany the teachers to Lagos.
The source said, “The story of the N200m loan was still a mystery to many of us. We do not have any account with the bank.
“We have asked the teachers to go and honour the invitation of the EFCC just to clear their names. The state government has made available the buses that will convey them to Lagos and legal team that will accompany them.”
