Former Accountant General of Nigeria, Jonah Ogunniyi Otunla has reportedly died in the United Kingdom.

According to reports, he died shortly after celebrating his 70th birthday.

Untill his death, he served as board member of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

On June 1989, he was appointed Accountant General the State, a position he held until March 2004 when he got a transfer to the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation.

On June 28, 2011, he was appointed the Accountant General of the Federation by former President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

On June 12, 2015, Otunla retired honourably from the Civil Service after attaining the mandatory age of 60 years.

However, he was being investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in relation to two cases of the alleged diversion of about N24 billion meant for disengaged staff of the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) and N2 billion allegedly received from the office of the national security adviser (ONSA).


He later refunded N6.3 billion to the coffers of the Federal Government to avoid being prosecuted for looting the treasury.
