The Senate has queried the payment of premium for the insurance of allegedly grounded aircrafts owned by the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS).

The Senate Committee on Public Accounts that is investigating the matter said the two aircrafts shouldn’t have been insured because they were grounded.

It has therefore given the NIS, a week to respond to the query and prove that no misdeed was committed while the committee’s investigation arose from the 2016- 2018 reports of Auditor Generals of the Federation.

According to the audit report, the cost of one of the premiums paid by the NIS in 2016 was 13.4 million Naira, while the ones for 2014/2015 and 2015/2016 were not shown to the panel.

Accordingly, the upper legislative house has launched comprehensive investigation on the matter.
