Stephen Oronsaye, a former head of the federation’s service, has been released and cleared of the N2 billion fraud accusation that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had brought against him.

In 2015, Oronsaye and Osarenkhoe Afe, the managing director of Frederick Hamilton Global Services Limited, were charged with corruption.

They were charged with employing two businesses, Xangee Technologies Limited and Frederick Hamilton Global Services Limited, for questionable biometric enrollment in the N2 billion fraud.
