The suspended Chairman of the Special Presidential Investigation Panel on the Recovery of Public Property, Okoi Obono-Obla, has filed a suit to challenge his probe by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC)
Obono-Obla was suspended on August 14 in an announcement by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, on the orders of President Muhammadu Buhari over allegations of falsification of records, abuse of office and extortion.
Mustapha also disclosed that the embattled presidential aide would also be investigated and prosecuted.
Sources close to Obono-Obla, however, confirmed that he filed a suit before the Federal High Court in Abuja to challenge the probe on Tuesday, with the ICPC as the sole respondent.
The sources also disclosed that Obono-Obla refused to appear before the ICPC on Monday because of his resolve to challenge his invitation by the anti-corruption body.
