Some officials of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) in the national assembly have appeared before the force criminal investigation department (FCID) over alleged N500 million fraud.
The affected officials are Sunday Sabiyi, chairman of PASAN; Stacy Nwodo, the financial secretary; and Samtiya Daniel, treasurer.
TheCable understands that they were invited to appear before the police on Wednesday over their alleged inability to account for some of the association’s funds.
The police invitation was sequel to a petition written against the officials by some suspended officials of PASAN, national assembly chapter.
Amos Enobong, assistant public relations officer of PASAN, national assembly branch, confirmed the development in a notice sent to PASAN members on Thursday.
According to the notice, the officials were granted administrative bail on self-recognition and asked to report back on April 4 for further questioning.
“This is a result of a petition filed by a group of 9 suspended PASAN former excos (G9) members over what they termed, ‘Financial Misappropriation’ by Current Excos of PASAN, to the Force CID, Abuja,” the notice reads.
“After interrogations and other processes were carried out, the union executives were granted adminstrative bail, on self-recognition, and to report back on Tuesday, 4th April, 2023, for further questioning.
“The union hereby assures her members that there is no cause for alarm as the situation is being handled by those concerned.
“You are to remain calm until further notice from the union. The union is not deterred but poised to defend itself to ensure accountability and discipline within its ranks.”
