ICPC threatens to declare Jang wanted

By Soni Daniel, Northern Region Editor

THE Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, has voiced out the frustration it has been going through in its bid to bring the former Plateau State Governor, Senator Jonah Jang, to account for N5.6 billion he allegedly took from the state coffers two months before vacating office as governor of the state in 2015.

The commission said in a statement yesterday that the former governor, now a Senator, had allegedly rebuffed every move by ICPC to bring him to book, including ignoring series of its invitations.

In the statement by its Spokesperson, Mrs. Rasheedat A. Okoduwa, ICPC threatened to declare Senator Jang wanted since the commission had reached a point that it could no longer tolerate the intransigence of the former governor.

The commission said: “ICPC may declare the former governor of Plateau State, Mr. Jonah Jang, wanted for failing to report to answer questions on allegations of embezzling N5.6 billion belonging to the state.

“ICPC has been on his trail since October 2017.”
