50 Civil Society Organisations have decried the inability of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) to arraign the staff of the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) Nelson Olegeh over alleged corruption.
Olegeh is accused of defrauding the government N70,800,000 million naira.
The African based CSOs who expressed displeasure over the inability of ICPC to institute a case against Olegeh, said he allegedly used his two companies to defraud the government of N7,800,000 using his two companies.
Led by the Global Information Team, the spokesperson of the groups Ezekiel Adedayo, said the inability of the ICPC to prosecute the inducted person portrays the Muhammadu Buhari’s government in bad light.
“They are portraying the Buhari’s government in bad light because anti-corruption cases are swept under the carpet. There seems to be compromise and conspiracy at the part of the ICPC officers investigating the matter because they have refused to do the needful.
“We therefore urge the chairman of ICPC to immediately order for the prosecution of the culprit Nkechi Moses added after the deliberation. We must make every parastatal a corrupt free one for the interest of the country and people.There is no way on daily basis corruption can be allowed to strive in view of why the anti graft agency must do the needful by commencing the prosecution of Nelson Olegeh. The SEC must also suspend him with immediate effect.
