The House of Representatives on Monday urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to commence an investigation into an alleged illegal movement of N4 billion from Industrial Trust Fund’s (ITF) account domiciled in Keystone Bank.

Rep. Ibrahim Baba, Vice Chairman, Public Accounts Committee, House of Representatives made the call following a query issued by the office of the Auditor-General of the Federation.

According to the query dated Dec. 2010, a total sum of N4.2 billion was illegally moved three times in November from ITF account to other accounts, all belonging to the same agency.

The Office of the Auditor-General questioned the propriety of moving the money without remitting N23.5 million interest accruing from the transactions to the agency’s account.

It also needed to ascertain who authorised the transactions and for what purpose it was done.

Responding to the query, the Director-General and Executive Chairman, ITF, Mr Joseph Ari said the transactions were made without the authorization of the agency.

Ari said that the bank’s response in May 2012 explained that the withdrawal from ITF’s remital control account was done in error.

According to Ari, Keystone’s position is that it was a wrong posting but was later corrected.

“However within the days the money was moved, ITF wrote Keystone Bank to remit the interest to the account accordingly but the bank didn’t reply.

“We reported the matter to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the CBN advised that parties should sit down and discuss.

“However, we sat down with keystone officials without finding a solution,’’ Ari said.
