The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has accused Abba Moro, the former interior minister, of awarding a multi-million contract without following due process.
The anti-graft agency disclosed this on Monday, November 25.
It said the interior ministry under Moro did not follow the laid down guidelines in the award of contract for the 2014 Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) recruitment exercise that claimed the lives of many applicants, Premium Times reports.
Moro, who is one of the senators supporting the regulation of social media, is being prosecuted by the EFCC at the Federal High Court, Abuja.

But Senator Mohammed Musa, who faulted the claim on his Twitter handle on Saturday, November 23, explained that all over the world, legislation in one country can influence laws in another country especially when the issue presents similar challenges of regulation.
He said it was necessary for lessons to be drawn from other jurisdictions in finding workable solutions in Nigeria.
