Too Bad! Dead People, Retired Civil Servants Discovered On Benue State’s Payroll

Benue State government, yesterday, said it had uncovered payroll fraud where dead and retired civil servants were being used to fraudulently draw salaries. The Deputy Governor of the state, Mr. Benson Abounu, who made this known at the commencement of the modified stable payment of salaries and screening of civil servants in the state, lamented that salary padding had also constituted a huge drain on the finances of the government.

Abounu said: “We did a mock screening of civil servants and discovered that of the 10 employees we screened, three of them ought to have been retired but are still in service receiving salaries.

“We also discovered that at the Ministry of Heath, administrative and clerical officers who are not entitled to night and shift allowances, are receiving such allowances.”
