Jibrin tours ICPC, EFCC, DSS to incriminate Dogara, others

Abdulmumin Jibrin on Monday visited anti-graft agencies to provide insight on how the Speaker and other House of Representatives members padded the 2016 budget.

The former Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation, who first visited Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC), on Monday about 10 am in the morning, insisted that Speaker Yakubu Dogara, Deputy Speaker Yusuf Lasun, Chief Whip Alhassan Doguwa and Minority Leader Leo Ogor must not go unpunished for the alleged padding of 2016 budget.

Jibrin is also said to have visited Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) office and Department of States Security (DSS) headquarters all in Abuja, to give more insight on his allegation that the Speaker and the other named principal officers of the House, padded the 2016 budget.

Jibrin is also accusing them of illegally allocating to themselves N40 billion out of the N100 billion allocated to the entire National Assembly.

Jibrin in his twitter handle Monday morning said, “We will be at the ICPC 10am, DSS 12noon, EFCC 2pm and Police HQ 4pm. The law will surely catch up with the corrupt Speaker Dogara and others

“My lawyers have confirmed my appointments for today (Monday) with security and anti-corruption agencies to personally provide insight on my petition.”
