The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission has urged the suspended Chairman of the Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property, Okoi Obono-Obla, to appear and clear his name.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja, ICPC Spokesperson, Rasheedat Okoduwa, said the former presidential aide resorted to propaganda against the commission instead of turning himself in.

Obono-Obla is on the ICPC wanted list for alleged corruption and abuse of office.

The anti-graft agency declared him wanted in October following his alleged repeated failure to honour the commission’s invitations.

However, he has reportedly denied the allegations and dismissed the action of the ICPC as an attempt to ridicule and embarrass him.

He is said to have also denied being invited by the ICPC for questioning before he was declared wanted.

Okoduwa said the commission was aware that the former presidential aide was back in the country and was even sighted at an event recently.

She said: “We are aware that Obono-Obla has returned to the county, and everything he has been saying about the commission and its chairman.

“He is reportedly going about saying ICPC is a rival office to his own.
