Usman Yusuf, Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), has claimed that he was suspended for refusing to release N975million to the Ministry of Health.

Yusuf stated this on Friday when he appeared before the House of Representatives panel investigating his suspension.

The NHIS governing board recently suspended him, after accusing him of financial infractions and abuse of office.

Addressing the house committee in Abuja, Yusuf alleged the panel that investigated him was bribed.

He said his “refusal” to grant the request from the Health ministry “led to the setting up of a panel to probe me.”

“And the panel delivered as the panelists were given N19 million, even the security too were given money,” he said.

Asked whether he has any evidence, Yusuf responded in the affirmative, saying, “I even have documented evidence of how the money was shared”.

Yusuf also revealed that the day the governing board announced his suspension, was the day he was meant to present a report on the violation of the public procurement processes at the agency.

“Why was I suspended on October 18 and not 19th of October? The 18th of October was the day I was going to present a result of the forensic audit of the activities of HMOs.

“Eighteenth of October was nothing but preemptive coup at the NHIS. It was a gang up to stop my fight against corruption.

“These are all allegations that have been recycled. They were all investigated by the ICPC and EFCC; and they found nothing and I was cleared. They wrote to me clearing me,” he said.

Yusuf denied illegally awarding contracts at will at the agency, but admitted that a company owned by his brother, Mohammed Kabir-Yar’Adua, was awarded a N406million contract at the agency.

He insisted that the company won the contract through due process in 2016.

On his part, the Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, insisted that Yusuf was justly indicted of corrupt practices.

Adewole, represented by Permanent Secretary at the ministry, Abdulaziz Abdulahi, insisted that cases of financial infractions were established against the NHIS executive secretary.

“All the allegations levelled against him are 100 per cent correct,” Abdullahi said.

A man who was arrested and charged for a serious sexual assault has pleaded guilty just days after his attack. Akrin Akinniran, 34, was charged on Monday, 22 October with sexual assault.

Police were called on Sunday, 21 October to reports of a serious sexual assault on Lower Clapton Road, E5 in London.

The victim, a 29-year-old woman, had exited a private hire vehicle and was walking along Lower Clapton Road. She was approached from behind before the suspect tried to speak to her.

The woman told the suspect to leave her alone and tried to walk away, however the suspect grabbed her and started kissing her neck. He then pulled the woman into an alleyway and continued to sexually assault her.

The woman was able to get away and ran to a man who was walking down the road. She asked him to call the police. As he was doing so, the suspect approached the victim and the witness and told him to hang up the phone and stop calling the police.

As the suspect was coming closer the woman screamed and the suspect ran off from the scene.

Officers arrived and collected CCTV footage from a fast food restaurant and took the woman to an east London police station.

On Monday, 22 October, Akinniran self-presented himself to an east London police station after seeing pictures of him circulating on social media which had been taken by a witness. He claimed that he was innocent and gave a different account of events from that night.

Officers searched the property where he was staying and found the identical items of clothing worn by the suspect in the photographs.

Later that day, he was charged with sexual assault and remanded in police custody to appear at Thames Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, 23 October where he pleaded guilty.
