The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other-Related Offences Commission, ICPC, on Wednesday said it would probe the allegation of corruption leveled against the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, during the recently concluded primaries of the ruling party.
The spokesperson of the ICPC, Rasheedat Okoduwa, stated this during a protest by some members of the APC under the aegis of Coalition for New Nigeria.
DAILY POST reports that some angry protesters stormed the headquarters of the ICPC, demanding the resignation and prosecution of Oshiomole
Addressing the protesters, Okoduwa said the body will begin investigation into petition filed against Oshiomhole soon.
“First of all, we will verify whether, indeed, he has a petition against him, and from there, we will look at what they are complaining about.
“So, if a petition comes right now, you don’t expect it to be investigated before all others before it.
“We thank you for bringing us the petition and you have done the right thing by going through the process of submitting your petition. I think you have already done what you needed to do.”
The ICPC’s decision to investigate Oshiomholeis coming after he was quizzed by the Department of State Services over alleged anomalies in the APC primaries.
