NIS recruitment Scandal: Abuja Court grants Abba Morro two weeks permission to seek medical attention abroad

An Abuja Federal High Court on Thursday granted former Minister of Interior, Abba Moro two weeks permission to travel abroad for medical check up.
This follows an application by counsel to the former Minister, Paul Erokoro, SAN, to this effect.


But the motion was objected by counsel to the Federal Government, Farouk Abdallah.
Abdallah argued that the former Minister failed to provide sufficient materials to warrant the court granting the motion.
He further argued that Moro failed to present before the court evidence of an appointment with a foreign doctor.
Justice Nnamdi Dimgba, however, permitted Moro to travel abroad for medical treatment but must avail himself during the next court session which was fixed for September 29.

The judge also ordered the release of Moro’s international passport, which has been in custody of the court’s registrar.
Moro was also directed to return his passport to the court 48 hours after his return.
Moro alongside a former Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Interior, Mrs. Anastasia Daniel-Nwobia‎, an ex-director in the ministry, Felix .O Alayebami and a firm, Drexel Tech Nigeria Limited, are currently standing trial for alleged complexity in the botched 2014 recruitment exercise of the Nigerian Immigration Service, NIS.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arraigned them on an 11-count charge.
