Ex-DG Pencom flees after DSS raid

Ex-DG PenCom, Mrs Chinelo Anohu-Amazu is on the run after operatives of the Department of State Services raided the office of the commission over refusal by the sacked DG to hand over to her successor.

 

According to reports, Anohu-Amazu was still passing out instructions as of Friday despite her sacking.

Officials said when the DSS operatives visited the PenCom office today, Anohu-Amazu evaded arrest and went into hiding.

In a bid to confirm her as the substantive chief executive of PenCom, former president Jonathan submitted a draft law that sought to relax the qualification requirements for a director general of the Commission. The pension bill reduced the years of experience required for a person to occupy the post of PenCom DG from a minimum of 20 to 15 years. 

Besides allegations of conflict of interest and sundry abuses, the controversial former DG has been accused by officials of the commission of consistent use of contacts in high places to run roughshod over everyone and every principle of neutral and effective pension administration as a regulator.

Top managers of the agency alleged that Chinelo Amazu has broken every rule in the book since she assumed office as Director-General of the organization.

Amazu, a close ally of runaway former attorney general, Bello Adoke, named as an alleged beneficiary in the $1.3 billion Malabu oil scam. 

However, the DSS had ordered that she appeared in its office on Monday.
