 A former staff of the Budget Office of the Federation, Mr. Henry Ilemona Oyibo, who is now with the Ministry of Niger Delta, has been arrested by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) for allegedly receiving gratification to carry out his official duties.  Acting on a petition submitted, the Commission’s operatives in their preliminary investigation, discovered that between 2014 and 2015, Mr. Oyibo received gratification to the tune of N5,547,600.00 of funds of the Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja from the Director, Finance and Accounts, Mr. Sule Otu, and three other staff for him as Liaison Officer, to facilitate the release of the Centre’s budgeted funds by the Budget Office.    The actions of the officials which border on corrupt offer and receipt of gratification by public officers are contrary to sections 8, 9, 16 and 19 of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act 2000.  Further investigation also revealed that Mr. Oyibo owns assets valued far beyond his legitimate earnings in breach of Section 44 (2) of the ICPC law.  All the suspected staff of the Federal Medical Centre who had been in custody previously were granted bail and released by the Commission, while Mr. Oyibo, who is now in custody, will be released upon the fulfilment of his bail conditions.  They will all be charged to court as soon as investigations have been completedThe post Photos: Former Budget Office staff nabbed by ICPC for allegedly receiving over N5m gratification to carry out his official duties appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
