Corruption: ICPC Detains 4 former Kogi Commissioners

Four former Commissioners under the defunct administration of ex-Kogi State Governor, Capt. Idris Ichalla Wada, have been arrested and are being detained by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) on allegations of misapplication of government funds and abuse of office.

The ex-Commissioners who include that of Culture and Tourism, Kayode Olowomoran; Transport, Abdulrahman Wuya; Works, Onama Godwin; and  Budget and Planning, Ali Ajuh  were arrested after ICPC commenced investigations into allegations that the suspects, acting in connivance with the former Governor, former Accountant-General, Ibrahim Idakwo and a former  Permanent Secretary in the state Ministry of Commerce, Frank Onoja, had obtained a N2billion Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) loan from the Central Bank of Nigeria on behalf of the state which was misapplied.

Preliminary investigations by the Commission also revealed that the suspects allegedly partook in the mismanagement of another N8 billion bond that was raised to fund 57 projects across the state. The large sums of monies released for the projects were allegedly far beyond the levels of work done.

Furthermore, the suspects are alleged to have benefitted from illegal deductions to the tune of N1.3 billion made from the funds of 21 local government councils of the state by the same administration.

As investigations continue, the suspects will remain in custody until they fulfill the administrative bail conditions granted them by the Commission.
