Former Accountant General of Nigeria reportedly dies in UK


Former Accountant General of Nigeria, Jonah Ogunniyi Otunla has reportedly died.

According to The Street Journal, Otunla passed on in the United Kingdom shortly after celebrating his 70th birthday.

Until his death, Otunla was being investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in relation to two cases — the alleged diversion of about N24 billion meant for disengaged staff of the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) and N2 billion allegedly received from the office of the national security adviser (ONSA).

He later refunded N6.3 billion to the coffers of the Federal Government to avoid being prosecuted for looting the treasury.
