There exists yet another unknown looter in the looting business in Nigeria, as heads of institutions in Nigeria have vowed to cripple schools they are put in charge of.
The latest looter in the country is Julius Okogie, who has been at the helm of affairs of the National Universities Commission (NUC).
Okogie has been accused of diverting over N20billion meant for the commission to his personal and business accounts for looting sake.
Okogie we gathered, has been involved in diversion of varsity funds and massive looting, misappropriation of government funds and embezzlement of the Commission’s funds, to the tune of N20 billion.
Okogie has accused one of the NUC board members of trying to blackmail him, but according to him, there is no proof whatsoever.
Okojie has severally been accused of financial impropriety and scandals.
Julius Okogie we learnt, has been in the habit of getting kickbacks from Universities to accredit courses in those institutions that do not meet the regulated standard.
The NUC Boss is not alone in this, as findings also reveal that his partner in crime, Professor Akaehomen Okonigbon Akii Ibhadode who is Vice Chancellor of Federal University of Petroleum Resources Effurun, (FUPRE), has also been neck deep in embezzlement of the Institution’s funds,to the tune of 20 Billion Naira through the help of Okojie as NUC Secreatary barely one year after his appointment as Vice Chancellor.
There are reports that, the anti graft agencies will swing into action to call the NUC secretary to answer for cases of improprieties and fraud.
