The
Independent
Corrupt
Practices and
other related
offences
Commission
has set up a
task force to
probe eight former governors.
A top operative of the commission, who confided in our correspondent on
Wednesday, said that the task force was set up following petitions written
against the former governors.
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.
A top operative of the commission said that the former governors were Alhaji
Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State; Chief Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers, Alhaji Ibrahim
Shema of Katsina and Sullivan Chime of Enugu State.
The source said that the other four were on the waiting list.
The former governors on the waiting list, according to the source are, Mr. Raji
Fashola of Lagos State, Godswiil Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State, Martin Elechi of
Ebonyi State and Alhaji Sule Lamido of Jigawa State.
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.
The source said, “It is true that we are going after eight former governors. The
investigation against four of the former governors of Rivers, Katsina, Kano and
Enugu has commenced.
“However, the commission has listed four other former governors who are on
the waiting list because of petitions against them. They are the immediate past
governors of Lagos, Akwa Ibom, Ebonyi and Jigawa States.
“A Special Task Force was set up by the Chairman of the commission last week
to coordinate the investigation in the states. So we are reopening the petitions
through the Chairman of the Special Task Force.”
The probe is coming on the heels of a recent move by the ICPC to move 47
crack detectives to the states and the zones to strengthen them in the fight
against graft in the society.
The Resident Consultant, Media and Events, of the ICPC, Mr. Folu Olamiti,
refused to comment on the story when contacted.
None of the ex-governors was available for comment on the probe.
