A forensic audit of the finances of some state institutions has revealed that some 6 state institutions have misappropriated over GH¢800 million.

In a document intercepted by Accra-based Joy FM, the investigation started after suspicion that there was widespread financial malfeasance under the erstwhile John Mahama-led administration.

Even though 18 state institutions were to be audited, 16 of them were investigated. 6 of the reports have been completed and the reports have been submitted to the Economic and Organised Crimes Office (EOCO).
