Senate accuses some banks and MDAs of colluding to divert funds



President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan has accused some banks of conniving with certain categories of workers in government agencies to divert public funds to private pockets.

He has therefore tasked the anti-corruption agencies to focus more on the activities of the banks especially their handling of government funds.

Lawan spoke at a brief ceremony in his office where the executive officers of the Chartered Institute of Forensic and Investigative Professionals of Nigeria made him their patron.

He said anti-corruption agencies should go beyond looking at what the government agencies are doing, stressing that they should also look at what banks are doing.
