The suspended chairman of the Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property (SPIP), Mr Okoi Obono-Obla, has reportedly filed a lawsuit against the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

KanyiDaily had reported that Obono-Obla was suspended on August 14 over allegations of falsification of records and financial impropriety by the ICPC.

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, who announced his suspension in a letter, said Obono-Obla will step aside until the commission concludes its investigation.

A fresh report by Punch claims Obono-Obla refused to appear before the ICPC on Monday, and had proceeded to the federal high court in Abuja on Tuesday to challenge the probe.

Oluwatosin Ojaomo, who served as a prosecutor under him at the SPIP, was quoted to have said that Obono-Obla, in the suit, is seeking to restrain the ICPC from arresting or summoning him.

“He contends in the suit that the ICPC had already judged him and convicted him before inviting him for interrogation,” Ojaomo reportedly said.

Sources confirmed that Obono-Obla refused to appear before the ICPC owing to his plan to challenge the summons by the commission.
