FG Investigates more Judges, Serving Minister, says ICPC, EFCC Compromised
Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Prosecution and Chairman Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property, Okoi Obono Obla stated these yesterday in Abuja.
“I want to arrest one minister in this government in the next few days and I want to arrest judges, so in the next few days you will hear and I don’t care, as long as they have not given me an order not to arrest anybody, I will arrest whoever has short-changed the Nigerian people,” Obla said.
He also revealed that Nigerians allegedly involved in Panama papers, Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) and other public interest cases will be prosecuted.
“$48billion has been invested in NDDC, if the money was judiciously used, some of the problems in the region would have been solved, but the money has gone down the drain,” he stated.
According to Obla, the anti-corruption agencies, particularly the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been compromised.
According to him;"“I recently received a list of cases to be prosecuted by the EFCC, including past government officials, and I was surprised that former governor of Cross River state Liyel Imoke was not included. I personally wrote a 21-page petition to the EFCC against Imoke and I was at the commission to substantiate my allegations, so we need to know what is happening with EFCC."
