The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested four top officials of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) over an alleged N2 billion-naira Duty Tour Allowance (DTA) fraud.
It was gathered that the suspects included one director and three deputy general managers in the authority.
A source who spoke on condition of anonymity confirmed the arrests, saying that one of the deputy general managers was taken into EFCC custody Thursday last week, while others were arrested on Monday, March 20.
As of Monday evening, the suspects are reportedly being grilled by a team of operatives at the anti-graft agency’s headquarters in Abuja.
The NCAA officials allegedly paid themselves and others DTA in excess of N2billion.
