Protesters Storm ICPC, Say Oshiomhole Must Be Prosecuted




Scores of protesters today stormed the headquarters of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) asking for the prosecution of the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole.

The placard-carrying protesters under the aegis of the Coalition for New Nigeria (CNN) said the protest was staged to arrest the danger faced by the the governing APC occasioned by the integrity challenged national chairman, Oshiomhole.

The CNN Convener, Barr. Stanley Onu, who addressed journalists, advised Oshiomhole to resign owing to the allegations against him which led to his invitation by the operatives of the Department of Security Service (DSS).

Onu also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to ask the embattled national chairman to leave before he leads the APC down the path of ignominy in 2019.

His words, “As you are all aware, our party, the APC is in serious crisis following the most reprehensible, divisive and widely condemned primaries across the states.’

“Today, the APC which was gaining grounds and welcoming new members is far from the all-embracing party it was when Mr. Oshiomhole took over as National Chairman.”

“Given the various allegations of corruption by respected chieftains and members of the APC, we are here calling on the various anti-corruption agencies to begin a comprehensive probe of not only these allegations, but his time the governor of Edo state.”

“For the avoidance of doubt, we are well aware that Justice Anwuli Chikere of the Federal High Court ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to commence criminal proceedings against Mr. Oshiomole for allegedly diverting state funds into personal use.”
