War Against Corruption: ICPC Set To Quiz Six Former Governors
The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) is set to invite for questioning some former governors over allegations of corruption during their tenures.
New Telegraph reports that ICPC operatives will
summon at least six ex-governors to the anti-graft
agency’s headquarters in Abuja for interrogation.
The questioning of the former governors comes
following the readiness of reports of a special
investigations ordered into their tenures.

A source familiar with the developments revealed
that the reports of investigations submitted by a
crack team known as “Chairman Special Team” is headed by the chairman of the commission’s investigation unit.

He added that the ICPC would invite the former
governors in groups to show Nigerians that it does
not consider party affiliation.

However, the source refused to name those ex-
governors that would be quizzed.

“I will not mention names, but all I can disclose to you now is the fact that the Chairman Special Team have since been turning in reports of their investigations and very soon former governors will be invited for questioning on allegations of corruption, abuse of office and such other related offences.

“They (the probe team) are coming back with their reports and the commission’s leadership is studying them with a view to instituting iron cast cases where substantial evidence to sustain charges are established.

“Importantly, I want to let you know that the ex- governors will be invited in groups in such a way that it won’t be sectional. The petitioners will be invited alongside the governors to authenticate their claims. ICPC hardly files more than eight charges and our lawyers are always meticulous in their prosecution,” he said.

Meanwhile, Prophet Timothy Akande, the
presiding pastor at Christ Apostolic Church, Osun
state, has predicted that corrupt officials in Nigeria
will face the wrath of President Muhammadu
Buhari.

The prophet said that corrupt people must be ready
to reap what they had sown and urged the
president not to relent in his fight against
corruption.
