EFCC freezes N365m from ASCSN scribe, Alade, N30m in accountant’s account over alleged fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has allegedly frozen about three hundred and sixty-five million naira (N365m) personal investment of Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) Secretary, Alade Bashir Lawal in Meristem securities limited.

DAILY POST gathered on Thursday that the EFCC has also frozen about thirty million naira (N30m) investment of

the Chief Accountant of ASCSN, Akorede Fatai, in the same company.

Sources within the union also disclosed to DAILY POST that the anti-graft agency has also gone after Lawal’s property agent.

It was gathered that the property agent has been given a marching order to appear before EFCC, to explain Lawal’s local and international property scattered all over Lagos, Abuja and the United Arab Emirates, worth billions of naira, which the agent helped to acquire for Lawal.

Our correspondent learnt that ASCSN, which is an affiliate of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC), is a senior staff union of senior civil servants from grades levels seven to levels seventeen in both the federal and state civil service of Nigeria.

DAILY POST recalls that the union has in the last few months been enmeshed in a series of crises.

The EFCC and Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) had commenced a probe of some officials of the union.

The anti-graft agency has now frozen about three hundred and sixty-five million naira (N365m) personal investment of Lawal in the said company due to the ongoing investigations over alleged financial fraud.

The sources within the union said Lawal is also being investigated over money laundering through the ASCSN cooperative account which he has used to divert union funds to his personal account.

There are speculations that the cooperative is unregistered and Lawal has been the only Chairman for over twenty years.

Former member of ASCSN National Executive Council, Andrew Emelieze, confirmed the development to DAILY POST on Thursday.

Emelieze in a telephone conversation with DAILY POST called on the Head of Service and the ministry of labour to investigate the allegations levelled against the officials.

“We as members of the union are disturbed over the ugly corruption crisis rocking our Union. we are worried that a workers’ Union that is supposed to protect workers’ interests has become the house of corruption and so we are calling for a forensic audit of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN).

“We, therefore, call on the Head of Service of the Federation, Dr Folashade Esan, the Ministers of Labour, Dr Chris Ngige and Mr Festus Keyamo (SAN) and the International Labour Organization (ILO) to seek to investigate the corruption crisis rocking the union”.

However, all efforts made by DAILY POST to get a reaction from Lawal and other officials of the union since Thursday morning have been unsuccessful.

Calls put through Lawal’s mobile phone were not answered while SMS sent to him has not been replied to as of the time of filing this report.
