Backlog payment of N-Power Batch C beneficiaries
NASIMS released a statement on Friday, April 14, saying its technical partners are working on the payment “to ensure seamless transaction”.
A validation link was provided by handlers of the N-Power scheme, with NASIMS stressing that successful account validation does not mean your payment will be instant.

D’Banj arrested, detained in Abuja over N-Power fraud
Legit.ng earlier reported that a popular Nigerian singer Dbanj, was arrested by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) over alleged fraud related to the famed N-Power scheme. Premium Times reports that the music star was forced to surrender himself at their headquarters in Abuja on December 6, 2022, after he was finally cornered.
It was alleged that D'Banj connived with corrupt government officials to introduce ghost beneficiaries into the payroll of the funds. The monies were later reportedly traced to accounts associated with the singer.
D’Banj now a free man after N-Power saga
However, three days later, D’Banj was released, with his lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, describing his detention as “unfair”.
Olajengbesi insisted that his client is clean and has no criminal or fraud record, adding that it is an embarrassment to Nigeria that a huge allegation of N900 million fraud was levelled against a public figure “without any evidence."
