The Nigerian Senate has reportedly made a discovery of N10 trillion fraud in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Vanguard reports.

It was gathered that the alleged fraudulent act was carried out by NNPC staff in conjunction with independent marketers as well as other top shots in the petroleum sector between 2006 and 2016.

This revelation has made the Nigerian Senate committees on Petroleum (upstream and downstream) and Gas, come together to commence a probe of the government agencies, their heads, government parastatals and other companies involved.
