An anti-corruption and investigation group, Save Our Soul [SOS] has exposed the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission [ICPC] and its former chairman, Mr. Ekpo Nta, as a “fantastically corrupt” agency.
The group revealed this in a memo it made available to Elombah.com on Thursday.
In the memo, they group said that they “have four good reasons to be very convinced that Nta Ekpo is an epitome of corruption personified.”
They alleged that they have submitted series of petitions to Mr Nta but that he traded them for selfish gains.
They, therefore, mentioned a few incidences and dared Mr Nta to challenge them anywhere, even in a court of competent jurisdiction.
The group alleged that Nta used his hunting dogs namely: Ufofia Abia, Akponimisingha Osuobebi Ekoi (Prosecutor & Investigator Attack dog), James Mathew, Eric Anona to scuttled evidences on following petitions:
1. National Maritime Academy Oron N18 billion fraud [see attached letter to the chairman of Code of Conduct Bureau]
2. Federal Ministry of Health Ebola N43 Billion funds fraud, and,
3. FCT Ecological Fraud & SURE-P fund fraud.
“In all these petitions,” they wrote, “Nta frustrated all the petitioners by ways of arresting them, chasing shadows and leaving the main substance.”
They alleged that Nta Ekpo enhanced and entrenched stealing and corruption in Nigeria.
Save Our Soul, taking cognizance of events leading to the retrenchment of the ICPC henchman, lamented that changing the chairman of ICPC is not enough.
It called for a total overhaul of the commission especially the chairman team.
“ICPC shielding crimes. Trading with evidence. Akponimisingha Osuobebi Ekoi is the Hunting Dog
“The above listed staff are business men who sees petition/ intelligence from teaming Nigerians as a way/means to use such intelligence to negotiate with suspects and expose the whistle blowers.
“It is a trade in stock within ICPC. A very pathetic one is that Akponimisingha Osuobebi Ekoi is gullible and act like a thug.
“Uncultured, very vulgar and ambiguous in all he does just to please his paymasters, usually the suspects who pay them handsomely to evade Justice,” the memo concluded.
