The trial of Stephen Oronsaye, a former Head of Service of the Federation, continued Tuesday.
A prosecution witness, Rouqayya Ibrahim, detailed how pension funds were diverted through the approval and release of funds for non-existent contracts.
Oronsaye is standing trial before Justice Gabriel Kolawole of the Federal High Court Abuja for a 24-count charge bordering on stealing and obtaining money by false pretence.
He is standing trial along with Osarenkhoe Afe, Managing Director, Fredrick Hamilton Global Services Limited.
Both men are alleged to have been complicit in several contract awards during his tenure as head of service.
