ICPC Sets Up Task Force to Probe Eight Former State Governors




The Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) has reportedly set up a task force to probe eight former Governors.

The Governors are Alhaji Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State; Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers, Alhaji Ibrahim Shema of Katsina, Sullivan Chime of Enugu State, Babatunde Raji Fashola of Lagos State, Godswiil Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State, Martin Elechi of Ebonyi State and Alhaji Sule Lamido of Jigawa State.

A top operative of the commission confirmed the reports to Punch and stated that the task force was set up following petitions written against the former governors. The source said that the ICPC was not considering political parties or association in its response to allegations of corruption made against the affected personalities in the petition.

It was learnt that top operatives of the commission working in the task force had been dispatched to the states to carry out the probe of the affected former governors.

    How come TA Orji with all the atrocities he committed in Abia state is not on the list? Or the probe will be in batches(he should be in the first batch o).
    Abians, pls write a petition against TA Orji’ since qualification for the probe is by petition.

    I just opened this page to confirm if my governor was included….I can’t believe that T. A. Orji is still lounging. That man deserves to be incarcerated.

    Definitely has to be in batches.
    Uduaghan nkor?
    Deltans arise!!! all them Keyamo and the active activist ….make una nor fall our hand ooo.

    If only this anti-corruption bill which is yet to be proposed(by Prof Sagay and his team) is passed and enforced. Where such cases can only be adjourned 4/5 times within the space of a minimum of 14 days and maximum of 9 months and judgement is passed. Till then, na advert ICPC dey do.

    Prof Sagay should please pressurize the presidency after all fighting corruption is GMB’s priority .
