The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) said it has began prosecuting civil servants who live beyond their earnings, adding that it seized 61 houses from one female public servant.
The commission revealed its intentions to make public list of most corrupt Ministries, Departments and Agencies.
The Chairman of the ICPC, Mr. Ekpo Nta, made this known on Friday while addressing participants of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies at the Abuja headquarters of the agency.
Speaking on the theme, ‘The role of the ICPC in the War Against Corruption: Mandate, Strategies and Challenges’, Nta pointed out that, “We are developing scorecard like Transparency International which rates countries as to the level of corruption of countries. We have developed one for ministries departments and agencies. Hopefully, we know those who will take the first prize.”
He added that once the 2016 Budget is passed, the ICPC would follow every event on how monies will be spent.
“We do prosecution but also try to seize the assets acquired (through corrupt means) so that apart from prosecution, we can strip you of the assets within and outside the country,” he said.
