Owasanoye — ICPC boss in trouble, dragged to Buhari
The Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), Mr. Bolaji Owasanoye, has been dragged before President Muhammadu Buhari along with other principal officers of the commission.
The complainant, Dr. George Davidson accused Mr. Owasanoye and the ICPC officials of corruption and sabotaging President Buhari’s anti-corruption war.
In a petition signed by one Mr. Sani Bello, the President of Eagle Eyes Transparency International, where Dr. Davidson is a stakeholder, Owasanoye was accused of “betrayal of public trust and abuses of office and corruption”.
(Eagle Eyes Transparency International is a Non Government Organization (NGO), as well as a whistleblowing outfit.)
Mr. Bello alleged that the ICPC Chairman gathers intelligence from willing whistleblowers, gathers evidence from them, turn around to hound them, incarcerated them and used the evidence obtained to negotiate deals with the primary suspects.
The letter, addressed through the Chief of Staff to the president, reads:
Complaint against Mr Bolaji Owasanoye, the Chairman ICPC, the Director Operations, Mr Akeem Lawal, the head Special Investigation Team Mr David Almede and Mr Ofile Innocent, Mr Mamman Kuru and Ms Kadijat Kontagora as sabotages to the President of Nigeria, His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari and the Patriotic Nigerians: betrayal of public trust and abuses of office and corruption
Above subject matter refers.
We are a Non Government Organization (NGO). Find attached is the certificate of incorporation and also the aim and objective of our organization.
We bring the attention of your noble office that Mr Bolaji Owasanoye has constituted himself to be an investigation agency and same time the court of law .
Mr Bolaji Owasanoye simply gathered intelligence from willing whistleblowers, gathered evidence from them, turned around to hound them, incarcerated them and used the evidence obtained to negotiate deals with the primary suspects.
A typical example of such is a case submitted to the chairman ICPC Mr Bolaji Owasanoye in May 2020 by our organization. The petition was against a civil servant by name Ms Regina Dominic who worked with the Federal Ministry of Youth & Sport. A grade level 09 Officer .
With a registered company with Corporate Affairs Commission. Find attached the receipt issued in the name of the company to our agent Dr George Davidson.
Also, Regina Dominic possess numerous properties within and around Abuja and New Nyaya in Nasarawa state. All evidence supplied to the investigation officers, namely: Mr Lawal Akeem, David Almede, Mamman Kuru & Ms Kadijat Kotongora.
To our dismay, our agent was incarcerated for supplying the ICPC chairman and his team with the above intelligence. Instead they incarcerated him from 13th October 2020- 30 October 2020, keeping him in a police cell.
We find it very disturbing that an agency like ICPC with someone we think ought to be a Professor at Law would act like an ordinary SARS-OC in a remote village but here we are at Abuja the Federal Capital Territory acting more of tout.
He led the agency as a sabotage, very corrupt!
We have avalanche of evidence on this his atrocious patterns of deceiving Nigerians and extorting suspects using whistle blowers gathered intelligence for selfish gains.
Worst is his director of operations Mr Lawal Akeem his Kinsman.
We vehemently opposed to this act as it is a means to frustrating the anti-corruptions services of the president and the Patriotic Nigerians. We shall expose all to the president and the globe at large.
We call on your noble office to discreetly investigate the activities of Mr Bolaji Owasanoye and his team as he shield suspected fraudsters, trade with intelligence.
He has expert in the system that front for him , negotiate with primary suspects to “kill the case” he is Mr Akpononimisingha Ekoi Osunobi. ICPC is a commercial center. ICPC is against the anti- corruption drives of Nigerians and the President of the federal government of Nigeria.
ICPC is an epitome of corruption under the leadership of Mr Bolaji Owasanoye.
Similar cases to be investigated are: the Case of one Mrs Roseline…., Ambassador…. Mr. Akwa Ibom….. Prof Kester John…. Global Funds, NMA -ORON, GAVI Funds, to mention but a few. We call on your noble office to investigate and prosecute these public officers who sabotage the efforts of Nigerians and discouraging the efforts of good spirited Nigerians.
We expect to supply more intelligence on request. Also find attached copies of opened petitions to the president on the subject matter. Mr Wellington the CSO of ICPC was useful in providing our agent with useful intelligence while he was incarcerated within ICPC cell.
Mr. Owasanoye is yet to respond to a note of inquiry sent to him by ElombahNews to confirm or debunk the allegations.
