The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has declared former chairman of the Special Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property (SPIP), Okoi Obono-Obla, wanted.
The anti-graft agency said it took the action due to his Obono-Obla’s “repeated failure to appear before it to answer questions bordering on allegations of fraud and corruption”.
President Muhammadu Buhari had suspended Obono-Obla in August, saying the suspension would be in force till the conclusion of the investigation of the ICPC.
In a statement on Tuesday, ICPC said Obono-Obla had refused to honour its invitation over a series of allegations levelled against him.
The agency said it had established that Obono-Obla left the country in August and had not returned since then.
Obono-Obla had said some public servants, whose accounts have been discovered to contain money unlawfully acquired, had resorted to false petitions and attacks on officials of the panel.
