I transferred 17 billion to my private account to prevent Bola Tinubu’s Minister, , from looting,” stated the dismissed CEO of NSIPA, .

The recently dismissed CEO of NSIPA, Halima Shehu, has come forward with bold claims, asserting that her alleged embezzlement of N30 billion was a strategic move to safeguard funds from Bola Tinubu’s Minister Betta Edu, who is supposedly intending to misappropriate them entirely.

According to Shehu, Edu had already misused a staggering 3 billion within a mere month.


The controversy deepens as Shehu, days after her arrest by the EFCC, faces scrutiny.

Ejes Gist News reports that Halima Shehu was accused of diverting a substantial 17 billion into a private account without presidential authorization. She was then suspended by President Bola Tinubu.

However, a fresh scandal emerges with Minister Betta Edu allegedly involved in the misappropriation of an additional 3 billion Naira.
