Abba MoroA former Minister of Interior, Abba moro, is presently in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) custody and he is being quizzed for his alleged role in the immigration recruitment which led to the death of about 20 young graduates.

A source from the anti-graft agency told Channels Television on Monday evening that Mr Moro will soon be arraigned in court of competent jurisdiction as soon as it finalises its investigation.

In 2014, the immigration service under his watch organised a recruitment exercise nationwide on the same day and due to the massive crowd, officials of the immigration were unable to effectively control the crowd.

This error led to the death of the young graduates and the former President, Goodluck Jonathan, ordered an investigation into the situation, a report which is yet to be made public.
