The deceased, who was in the state Pension Board, died on Monday at the Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja, few days after allegedly receiving his sack letter.
The Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to the Governor, Petra Onyegbule, said in Lokoja that the late Ameh and four others in the State Pension Board were sacked due to alleged misappropriation of Pensioners’ fund.
She added that the late Alphonsus Ameh actually confessed that he received a sum of two million naira as his own share of the looted pensioners’ fund, which he thought was a Christmas bonus. He further added that he has commenced repayment.
