ICPC clears Yewande Sadiku of all fraud allegations

Published

on

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) says it was unable to establish allegations of corruption against Yewande Sadiku, former CEO and executive secretary of the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC).

In a letter dated December 16 and addressed to the CEO of NIPC, the ICPC said it received a petition against Sadiku and some other officials of the NIPC, accusing them of mismanaging public funds.

According to the ICPC, the allegations are summarised as “fraudulent abuse of office; waste and mismanagement of public funds by the executive secretary of the NIPC through incessant tours and travels within and outside Nigeria without adding value to the Commission”.

Sadiku was alleged to have “embarked on foreign trips without express approval of the governing council of the commission; used the commission’s fund to repair her damaged personal vehicle”, as well as received “illegal foreign leave allowance”.

However, Akeem Lawal, ICPC director of operations, in the letter, said the allegations couldn’t be substantiated.

“Upon investigation, none of these allegations was established, and the striking out of suit No FAC/ABJ/CS/249/2019 by his lordship, Hon. Justice A.R. Mohammed of the federal high court of Nigeria, Abuja division, brings the investigation to a close,” the letter reads.

Sadiku, who was appointed executive secretary/CEO of NIPC in 2016, completed her five-year tenure in September.
In August, the NIPC had issued a statement saying Sadiku voluntarily honoured an invitation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), contrary to reports that she was arrested and detained over allegations of contract fraud.

Published

on

There was pandemonium in the Jikwoyi axis of the Nyanya-Karshi road in Abuja, on Monday morning as security agents allegedly clashed with hoodlums who were said to have killed a policeman overnight in the area.

Eyewitnesses confirmed that the operation led to a riot by the hoodlums while workers and commuters were on their way to the city centre.

The crisis was said to involve police officers and scavengers popularly known as “Mai bolas.” who set at least one car on fire.

The security operatives were said to have chased them to their hideouts around the area, which were later brought down.

While the crisis lasted, vehicular movement was blocked on both sides of the Nyanya-Karshi dual-carriage road as drivers turned around to avoid getting caught in the crossfire.

A combined team of security forces was said to have successfully dislodged the hoodlums and arrested a number of them before order was restored in the area.
