A woman, Mrs. Funmilayo who is a mother of two has confessed how she stole 60 million Naira from the National Health Insurance Scheme, NHIS.
She is one of the many suspects paraded by the Police in Lagos.
The suspect was arrested with her lover also accused of conniving with her to divert the said sum meant for health insurance to her personal account.
The suspect alongside her lover identified as Tunde made the confession while being paraded by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Zubairu Muazu.
She further admitted: “I had worked with Clearline International Limited from 2014 till early 2019. What we do there is that we act as the middle-man between NHIS and the hospitals.
“Our company cheat the system as they falsify records. When NHIS gives us money to pay hospitals and we do not spend all that was given to us, we do not refund the excess to NHIS purse, the company pockets the money”
