We’ll probe Oshiomhole, ICPC tells anti-APC chairman protesters

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other -Related Offences Commission 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 party primaries .

The ICPC ’ s decision to investigate Oshiomhole came barely one week after he was quizzed by the Department of State Services over alleged anomalies in the APC primaries .

The spokesperson of the ICPC , Rasheedat Okoduwa , said this during a protest by some members of the APC under the aegis of Coalition 4 New Nigeria .

The anti – Oshiomhole protesters , led by a legal practitioner and civil rights activist, Stanley Onukwufor , carried placards with various inscriptions such as ‘ With Oshiomhole APC is nowhere ;’ ‘ ICPC , probe Oshiomhole now ;’ ‘ Buhari , remove Oshiomhole ;’ ‘ Oshiomhole is corrupt ;’ and ‘ Oshiomhole must go . ”
Okoduwa said , “ 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 .

“ Then , the next step is to investigate the petition and see whether there is anything worthy of investigating in the matter.

“ It goes through our normal processes . But let me just sound a note of caution . We receive petitions virtually every hour . So , the petitions is like queuing up and had to be addressed in the sequences they come.

“ 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 . ”

Onukwufor alleged that the APC has failed with Oshiomhole as chairman , adding , “ We don’ t want him there again. ”
