The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has announced the arrest of two officials of the Social Investment Programme in Kogi State, over allegations of fraud to the tune of N68,097,053.
Spokesperson for the ICPC, Mrs. Rasheedat Okoduwa, who made the disclosure in a statement said the arrests followed the ongoing collaboration between the anti-graft agency and the National Social Investment Office (NSIO).
Okoduwa gave the names of the suspects as Hon. Adoga Ibrahim and Khadijat Karibo.
“The recently-launched collaboration between the National Social Investment Office (NSIO) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) to root out corruption in the Social Investment Programmes (SIPs) has begun to yield fruits as two persons involved with the programme in Kogi State are currently under arrest by ICPC for alleged N68,097,053 fraud.
“While Ibrahim was appointed the State Focal Person in 2016 for the National Home-Grown School Feeding Programme (NHGSFP) for Kogi State and left office in May 2019, Karibo is still serving as the state’s Programme Manager,” Okoduwa said.
