EFCC rearrests ex-civil servant who has been on the run over ‘N3bn pension scam’

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has rearrested John Yusuf, a former civil servant, over alleged N3 billion pension fraud.

The EFCC had on March 21, 2018, secured a “re-conviction” of Yusuf for six years while from the appellate court also ordered him to pay a fine of N22.9 billion.

But Yusuf has reportedly been at large after a federal capital territory high court set him free.

However, a court of appeal in Abuja granted the anti-graft agency prayer for Yusuf to be rearrested.

The court also sentenced Yusuf to serve six years in Kuje prison.

EFCC has rearrested Yusuf in Gombe.
