Former Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro, was yesterday re-arraigned before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, over his role in the 2014 Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) recruitment exercise that went tragic.

Moro was earlier arraigned in February alongside former Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Mrs. Anastasia Daniel-Nwobia‎, former director in the Ministry, Mr. Felix .O Alayebami as well as Drexel Tech Nigeria Limited on an 11-count charge.

Moro and others were accused of defrauding 675, 675 graduate applicants of about N675,675,000, having been made to pay N1000 each as processing fee for 5,000 job openings.

The four defendants were also accused of breaching Public Procurement Act, No. 65 of 2007 in the award of contract for the organisation of the recruitment test to Drexel Tech Nigeria Ltd.
